A man walks out of a boarded up Walmart store with a cart full of bottled water and other supplies in Kitty Hawk in the North Carolina Outerbanks on August 26, 2011 ahead of the expected landfall in the area of Hurricane Irene. Millions of people on the US east coast braced for the hurricane, a massive storm officials fear will cause widespread flooding and dangerous conditions up the seaboard. Officials from North Carolina to New York declared states of emergency as tens of thousands of the most vulnerable residents were ordered to higher ground as Irene raced toward the US mainland.
