Forecasters: Hurricane Irene makes New Jersey landfall packing winds of about 75 mph
By The Associated Press

MIAMI (AP) ' Forecasters say Irene, still barely a hurricane now with top sustained winds of 75-mph (120-kph) winds, has made landfall on the New Jersey coast.

The National Hurricane Center said the center of the huge storm lumbered ashore near Little Egg Inlet at 5:35 a.m.

The center says a hurricane warning remains in effect from coastal Virginia northward to Sagamore Beach, Mass. The storm remained a Category 1 hurricane and forecasters expect little change in strength before an expected landfall later Sunday.

The center says Irene was 100 miles (160 kilometers) south-southwest of New York City. It was moving north-northeast at 18 mph (30 kph).
