    just wanted to let you know that you are a moron who has no idea what you are talking about. you are a total waste of space and i hate your blog. eat shit and die by drowning in the storm surge of a hurricane that you call “over-hyped”. Maybe not this storm, but hopefully karma will fuck you up. Douche bag

    • Thanks. Which station above do you think is reporting more than 45 MPH?

        Steve,

        I am confused now. (not unusual for me)

        I look at the map on my computer screen and see a bunch of little flag things and they have numbers in them. Most say 70 something. What am I missing?

        By the way, I can not find any hurricane force winds anywhere I look today and I have been trying. Is that map of yours from weather underground? I can not get any wind speeds from them.

      • huishi says:

        Damn, I finally got something from weather underground and looked at the legend and see that the number is temperature! and wind-speed is the flag on the pole.

  2. Beanzzz says:

    You are overlooking the very basic fact that winds are higher on the EAST side of a hurricane.

  3. Biff says:

    Moronic conspiracy theorists for weather? Are you people just determined to deny everything?

  4. Jeff B says:

    Governor of Virginia Bob McDonald said some airports located 100 miles from the eye have measured wind gusts over 70mph within the last hour. (Live press conference

    • We get wind gusts over 70 MPH in Colorado all the time.

      • Latitude says:

        We get that all summer…..every time a T-storm collapses or in the winter with fronts

      • Terra Incognita says:

        How many billions of dollars worth of damage do those winds cost in Colorado versus the East coast?

      • RichmondHurricane says:

        Does your mom know you’re on the computer this late? You don’t understand the difference between 8 inches of rain, plus 60mph gusts in Richmond? Let me help…go to dom.com (Dominion)…76% of Central VA doesn’t have power. The wind is blowing the water from the Chesapeake into populated areas…that already have a foot of rain. And this is occurring over the course of 12+ hours. Yeah, houses aren’t being blown away, but buildings are collapsing in downtown Richmond and trees are down in the thousands. We’re not talking about a random thunderstorm in the Rockies. And please, out of the respect of the people who have died today (including a 10 year boy crushed by a tree), please grow up.

  5. Jeff B says:

    OK, but 74mph wind is considered hurricane force on the Beaufort Scale. And that is official airport measurement 100 miles away. Consistent with what Masters said.

  6. Biff says:

    I once got hit by a wind gust when I opened a door to a bank. Geez, this is an odd debate.

  7. TheChuckr says:

    Irene is over warm water and on the radar it looks like an eye is forming. If an eywall forms again, with the pressure still at 28.06, strong winds might re-emerge. The torrential rain is a given; here in NE NJ where I live, over 0ver a foot of rain might fall. Irene may have “disappointed” so far, but I would not take this storm lightly.

  8. hell_is_like_newark says:

    News here around NYC is talking about the coming storm surge. How did the actual storm surge compare in NC with what was predicted?

  9. Richard says:

    Might NOAA be exaggerating? Sure. This is the same agency in charge of putting independent fishermen out of business in favor of factory farms.
    No matter which way you slice it, Irene is going to be good for the economy. GDP doesn’t distinguish between catastrophe and creativity. So if the oligarchy can encourage people to spend a lot on stuff in preparation for an alleged potential calamity, then you ride a bigger economic surge.
