But, please be aware that the storm is over 300 miles wide (TS-force winds). The cone of error is for the center of the storm only. There is still a possibility that the storm could travel on the left side of the margin of error. Therefore, the loss of that warning was unsubstantiated, and probably the wrong thing to do in case the storm makes a move towards the right edge of the cone.
Where the heck do you get 300 miles from??? Max extension is 100 nautical miles out in the SE quad. Nowhere near 300 miles.
TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO 115 MILES...185 KM FROM THE CENTER.
That's a 115 mile *radius*, therefore around 330 miles in diameter. But, that's a rough estimate.
This has already been debunked later on...but a radius of 115 miles is a diameter of 230 miles, not 330. -Clark
