Default Strongest Hurricane EVER RECORDED In Atlantic Heading Toward Puerto Rico And Florida

I'm not sure it's the strongest but yeah it's a baddie. Talked to all in the path except my daughter who is not in evac area but at tip of where it may land. My brother -who just moved back to Ft Myers from N Fla- doesn't take chances. When they say it's headed in his direction he leaves. Thank God.

Several people have commented that these scientist predicting strength and general direction of these storms are the same ones warning us about climate change.

CAT 5 hurricanes that have hit the USA mainland.

1935 "Labor Day" hurricane hit between Key West and Miami on Sept 2nd 1935.

Hurricane Camille hit Gulf the Coast of the U.S. on Aug. 18, 1969.

Hurricane Andrew hit south Florida on Aug. 24, 1992.

So, yeah, we're about due for another. Most models indicate Irma will be a CAT 4 if it hits the USA mainland.

The model predictions are only semi-reliable though.

Sorry I posted about Erma to but 2 hours after you did salty...

http://www.politicalwrinkles.com/cli...tml#post906305

There are several related news items with this link above.. One is about evacuation of citizens...

The path projection is hugging alone the coast going north.. . And storm season has started for the living alone the east/south coasts.

I do hope this is our last big storm for this season...

I wondered at that too. Carla or carmen (?) came from the gulf hit mississippi then zig zagged from texas to fla or vice versa.
Andrew was cat 5 and came out of the atlantic
So I assume they mean its ocean speed (since it hasn't hit land yet).
That speed is a whopping 185 mph. so yeah the headline is correct.

Quite simply, meteorologists never expected a storm like Irma. The storm appears to have exceeded (or is about to exceed) the maximum theoretical strength for a hurricane in its environment — an estimate based on current water temperature and other conditions.
Irma, the strongest Atlantic hurricane in history, keeps getting stronger | Grist
Irma has grown in size amid nearly ideal circumstances for intensification over the past several days. On social media, hurricane experts pondered whether or not it should be considered a Category 6 — which it would qualify for if the traditional five-tiered Saffir-Simpson scale were extrapolated for wind speeds as strong as Irma’s.

also here's some comparisons of hurricanes
How Hurricane Irma compares to historic hurricanes
by the article I can only decipher that it will be bad if it lands where people are
and for some reason they may raise the category -first 6 in history depending on what happens

the storm looks bad.

making it about climate change is... sad.

there are places close to where i lived in Virginia that weren't even there when the area was settled by Europeans. Hurricanes and Storms CREATED new land. go back further in history to Huge storm events as well as extreme in temps high and low, droughts, and heavy rains etc..
been happening since the world began.
"climate change" "predictions" are BS since they now only predict "CHANGE" and they've also been WRONG for over a decade now when they more narrowly predicted "warming" with ice caps melting and sea level rises. The "predictions" said we'd all be about dead and starving by now IF WE DIDN"T DO SOMETHING. Why is it that they don't admit that they were WRONG.
But only make noise when a singular event ...withen the normal range of weather... leans toward one aspect of the OVER BROAD and otherwise failed "predictions" of the past?

Irma will hit Florida as a category 3, the way it keeps hitting the Caribbean islands in her path.

Strongest hurricane and ever recorded seem to be more hype than verifiable fact.

Wiki lists he following:

Saffir–Simpson scale - Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saffir–Simpson_scale
Of the 32 hurricanes currently considered to have attained Category 5 status in the Atlantic, 17 had wind speeds at 175 mph (78 m/s; 152 kn; 282 km/h) or greater and only 7 had wind speeds at 180 mph (80 m/s; 160 kn; 290 km/h) or greater.

All in the same category. 2 of the 7 highest speeds are listed at 185 or better.

Ever recorded is a long time and appears to not be all inclusive. Anemometers are not all reliable at very high speeds, and the early ones often were blown away before max speeds were attained.

So is Irma the strongest ever recorded? Possibly, possibly not. But it makes a good headline.

Far better than this has happened before if you are implying that somehow this is AGW at its finest.

I can't believe they have a friggin plane flying around inside the eye. Would that be fun or what? I would like to go to Florida. I'm tired of hot sunny weather 7 days a week. ( and I'm not being my usual sarcastic self this time)
