Quote: I am a Katrina survivor from Biloxi, Mississippi. I have major roof and interior damage, but I still have 4 walls enclosing a slab...which makes me EXTREMLY BLESSED! Those of you in Florida are also veterans of many a hurricane! Has any one of you ever seen a storm take such a sharp turn to the right? I have seen them wobble, do loops, and stall and tease their victims. But I have never seen any storm make such a drastic change in direction!'
You bet we did, Hurricane Jeanne last year made a full 360deg. loop before making landfall in Florida. Also, as I recall, many years ago a hurricane made a full loop before hitting Mississippi or is my recollection wrong?
Also, while Charley did not do a full loop, he took many by surprize (at least those who focused on the narrow prediction path rather than the probability cone which the NHC had *accurately* generated)
