That blows!
2003-07-14 04:42:01 AM  
wow, I remember Floyd.... I remember seeing it on TV< it was like twice as big as Florida... I was in the middle of FL, and they were predicting 70-80 mph winds at my place. damn, too bad it never hit
2003-07-14 04:59:34 AM  
That's really cool... too bad you can't control where one goes and watch the traffic running away from where landfall is expected, and then have it change course *suddenly*

oh well... my ambitions of playing god are gone for another day.

Wow. What's up with Galveston? I didn't know a Hurricane could go that far inland.
2003-07-14 05:06:05 AM  
yep, pretty interesting stuff. I like to watch the windspeed. Just imagine someone getting blown off the map when a 150 mile an hour storm comes gunning.

Technically it wasn't a hurricane very far inland.

I clicked on 2003 storms.... saw ana, claudette, bill, and TWO. TWO??? who the hell names these storms anyways??
2003-07-14 06:37:22 AM  
Two is for Tropical Depression two. It didn't last long.

By the way, Camille, Danny, and other storms have crossed land for 1200 or so miles or more to redevelop back into a storm in the Atlantic.

Their data for the labor day hurricane is wrong. It was a cat 5.

A few other "historical" storms don't seem to have accurate data...

hurricanes make me glad I don't live on the east coast. of course, we have earthquakes, but at least you can build homes that can withstand them. :P
2003-07-14 08:03:57 AM  
yeah...several of the historical storms are off by one category or so. i grew up in Miami, used to track every storm, every year.

you can build homes that will withstand hurricanes....the biggest problem is that yuor neighbors house may not be able to. when winds are moving at 150 mph and concrete block flys into your house....well, your screwed. our house was made of mostly cinder block and stood up well until a 73 chevy pickup landed in the kitchen.

Pretty cool! (and I'm a meteorologist!)

'Bout time I actually used something I learned in 4 years of drinki... Uh, I mean studying...
2003-07-14 09:05:57 AM  
Is there any way this can be used to get rid of Pat Robertson's weather predictions?
2003-07-14 09:41:19 AM  
And how exactly is this interactive?

/weak; just like the storm
2003-07-14 10:49:52 AM

eastern nc goes underwater :D

Thanks to which ever farker posted that link... pretty cool stuff!
2003-07-14 11:23:18 AM  
Why'd they stop naming hurricanes after women only?

I always thought that was appropriate.
2003-07-14 01:24:36 PM  
Cool applet.

I guess that website doesn't work for 26.4k connections... CRAP! It would probably been cool if it did.
Here's a few REAL weather GEEK links for those geeks disappointed in this one..... Cool tropical storm coverage and archives. Excellent sfc & sat layouts. Outstanding high-res satellite coverage and animations.

oh yeah and, the website I help work on...(for the hardcore weather junkies).
2003-07-15 03:43:41 AM is the shizzle my meteorizzles.
best radar graphics around.

been loving them long time
