Millions of residents of the East Coast for whom a hurricane strike is, at best, a dim memory now face a serious threat from Hurricane Irene. For days computer simulations of the long-term trajectory of the storm had been shifting a bit to the east day by day.

But the latest analysis by the National Hurricane Center has shifted the zone for the storm location five days from now to the west. You can see the shift in the video below, which is an animation of the sequence of forecasts by the center:
