OMGosh! The link you posted is one for the record books! Is there any reason to wonder why people panicked?
Why a Sharpie was used? I actually have more faith in the knowledgeable folks here on this web site...Flhurricane.com /Hurricanes Without the Hype than the weather reporters. The NHC is getting very good in forecasting, but we don’t watch and listen to it hour after hour....day after day. We are transfixed to The Weather Channel, Accuweather, etc. which turns us all into nervous Nellies!

During times of hurricanes my iPad is joined to my hip with Flhurricane up and running, but my tv is tuned to the histrionics of weather reporters with mic in hand bravely confronting the wind and driving rain. I actually saw one waist deep in the coming storm surge. As the saying goes, “Ya just can’t fix stupid!”

Just received an email from my nephew in Halifax. Lots of trees down and power outages. His power was down for 24 hours and he lost parts of his chimney during the windstorm. At the time, the storm had winds of 100mph and a forward speed of 30. Basically it ran over Nova Scotia, but was moving faster so less grinding than in the Bahamas.

The “Sharpie” remark was not needed. As it turned out the NOAA backed the user of the Sharpie. There were reports Dorian could impact Alabama. Just like reports of Dorian “going up the spine of Florida”.

Edit: I failed to mention “a strong possibility Dorian will cross over Florida into the Gulf. People of the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to the Florida panhandle should be on alert.” Guess what states are in between....Mississippi and Alabama! The Sharpie was correct!




It needs to be said that NHC...like every other government agency...was probably crapping it's pants the entire 4 years "that guy with the Sharpie" was in government as it saw it's funding go "poof" just like anything else that spoke against "that guy with a Sharpie."

-Revisionist information.

The safest way to deal with a potential Hurricane hitting you...is to leave and just not be there at all.

Pathetic to inject your vile political spew into a weather forum. Get over it!
