Conservative radio host Glenn Beck told listeners Friday that Hurricane Irene, the Category 1 storm that's working its deadly way up the Eastern Seaboard, is "a blessing from God."

Beck has long urged his fans to stockpile food in their homes in anticipation of a global food disruption. He said Irene should be construed as a divine warning for those who have ignored that advice.
