meh... we have only been accurately measuring hurricanes for a few decades. But there are some pretty incredible accounts from hundreds of years ago that impress me more.

Isn't the great red spot on Jupiter like a hurricane which is even bigger than the earth?

They've got to regret some of those names though. One of the biggest hurricanes ever, and you called it John?

#6. thefox 'the hurricane graphics are rotating the wrong way'

Good observation foxy! Really. Nice catch.

It seems your skills with creating and trying to maintain spin with your own life have finally payed off. You appear to know incorrect, innaccurate or false spin when you see it. That makes makes two of us :)

We all have room for improvement Austin; only a fool would deny that. Here's hoping you can reinforce your impressive book knowledge with real world experience. ;)

#1. Dennis53 ‘accurately measuring hurricanes for a few decades’ and ‘incredible accounts from hundreds of years ago that impress me more’

Oh Denis53, this predictable response of a global warming / climate change denier. Sigh.

I would be grateful if you could please share some of these ‘incredible accounts from hundreds of years ago’ that so impress you and convince you that global warming is a hoax.

And please, not anecdotal stories from sailors but actual confirmed (relativized) assessments of property damage, deaths, and size and scale of the storm. Big storms have always existed but it is the increase in greenhouse gasses due to human activity from the 19th century onwards, rising sea level and the concomitant increase in ocean temperatures – again as a result of human activity – that make storms in the 21st century bigger, more frequent and more destructive.

I have science, evidence, modelling, accurate longitudinal predictions and references on my side. What do have? Besides denial. Knutson, Thomas R. et al. “Tropical Cyclones and Climate Change.” Nature Geosci 3.3 (2010) : 157-163.

and sorry #11. Klemm. the box top was loose so I got out ;-) Deal with it.

Damn, good observing, fox! :) Wished I had seen that too, since I consider meteorology my secret passion.

Apparently size does not matter when it comes to a hurricane, you'd think they would be very dangerous but as long you're on land and not on an island they really aren't all that dangerous. Media loves to over exaggerate events like this because it gives more viewers. I'm not saying you should stand on the street when a hurricane is passing through, though people did during the strongest winds of Irma here in Tampa Bay. I had my pool inside a net cage and after Irma went through only a couple of the nets were ripped. I was not there when the hurricane warning hit, I secured my property(looting was by far my biggest concern) and took the flight to California.

#14. They can still be very dangerous, even though they quickly fall apart when reaching land, but they can still hold a tremendous amount of moisture, and they will still dump that far inland. So flooding can always be a big problem, and also spawning of tornadoes.
