Well, as we wait to see if Fay makes it back over water, somewhere off Melbourne, heres a question that i'll pose ( moreso just to have fun with the debate ).
Fay first made landfall, when hitting Key West in the Florida Keys, before moving over Florida Bay. Fay then struck Florida's lower S.W. coast near Marco Island. Then, assuming emergence off the Fla. east coast (assuming that some of the model guidance verify's), after having crossed the state, Fay now would be over water in the Atlantic again, again re-entering some point on the Florida east coast, then back to the Gulf of Mexico....... Finally, if not enough wandering around, what if after entering the Gulf, Fay turned north and again, struck somewhere in the Florida Panhandle? Add it up.....how many landfalls do you get????
Is a "landfall" only a landfall when entering a land mass, or also when hitting an area on the way out?
