Quote: I don't think it was a question that a jog to the west would not make it a Florida storm, but any divergence to the west would be important for this reason: where it crosses Cuba. If it passes through the middle of Cuba, it won't be a strong coming out, but if it just crosses the western tip of Cuba it's not going to make a big difference.
Also: the question asked about TIA and flights was a valid question. There are some people here who just lurk and don't know what effects a hurricane will have on other activities. It wasn't a "no brainer" it was a question that deserved a decent answer.
I think the poster meant it was a no brainer for what the airport would do if a hurricane hit tampa. The poster was not implying it was a no-brainer of a question. The answer the poster received was decent and absolutely correct.
