No projected tracks from Saturday’s early morning National Hurricane Center update show Tropical Storm Irene making landfall on the east coast of the United States.

Irene - on the verge of becoming a hurricane Saturday morning - was expected to turn northward and eastward during the next three days, which means it would pose no threat to the U.S. east coast.

This forecast has been adjusted to the east of the previous advisories, said forecasters.

Irene is the earliest ninth named storm in Atlantic hurricane season history. Normally there are only two named storms by this time in an average Atlantic hurricane season.
