    The evacuation order for low-lying parts of New York City will be lifted at 3 p.m. ET Sunday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. The order had been put in place as the city braced for the worst from this weekend’s storm system.

    As it turned out, Irene’s impact with North Carolina weakened the storm. “It never got its eye back. It never got its mojo back,” CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.

    In other Irene-related developments:
    –At least 15 people have died so far across six states
    –The storm is heading northeast toward New England with 60-mph winds
    –“Do not leave your homes. … It is still not safe,” New Jersey’s governor says, as much of his state is flooded
    –Flooding in New York City threatens its electrical infrastructure, which is below ground
