Why bother adding Cats >5

MikeC replies “I think extending the Scale is pointless and just confuses folks.”

I agree with Mike, but will also ask why? Global warming is cyclical...much warmer in the 1930’s than today. Dorian actually is not an anomaly....just different and unexpected in the area. We’ve had many Cat 5 storms through the decades. Besides once a storm reaches Cat 5 it’s all relative.
