The criteria for naming tropical storms hasn't changed.  All that has changed is allowing more flexibility in issuing warnings, rather than basing those decisions on technicalities.

The new changes will allow watches and warnings to be issued or remain in effect after a tropical cyclone becomes post-tropical, when such a storm poses a significant threat to life and property.

In addition, the National Hurricane Center will be permitted to issue advisories during the post-tropical stage.


FINALLY!  It's always been the height of absurdity when a hurricane gets constant coverage up to the point of extratropical transition, and then nobody appears to care about it anymore despite it being as powerful or more powerful than it was when it was classified as a hurricane.  Your house doesn't care about what energy source the storm is drawing from when it's firing fence-posts and tree branches through your walls and windows.

J. Frank Parnell: Problem: We told everyone there would be more hurricanes in the future, and instead there are hardly any.

Solution: Start calling any strong breeze a hurricane.

Is this so New Yorkers can claim they were in a hurricane and beg for more money?
