Mike, what are your thoughts on extending the Saffir Simpson scale to H6 and H7 given this storm? Surely 185 sustained needs to be more than an H5. People listen to the size of the storm and not the speeds and H5 is a full 30 MPH slower than the current speed of Dorian. It's like the largest EF4 tornado ever measured.

I think it's a good idea. When the original scale was thought of, we did not yet recognize global warming. As our planet's weather patterns change it would be a good idea to update this scale. Stronger winds need to be measured beyond the scale we currently have. We need to accommodate for a changing future. Sorry if this is off topic. Just adding my two cents.

Here is a story that supports my view good read https://www.popsci.com/category-6-hurricane/
Let's stay on topic (on Dorian, right here, right now) and less on climate change or other secondary or tertiary discussion/theories. Feel free to open up a new topic "Climate change and Dorian?" or something like that in ASK/TELL. Thanks! - Ciel
