    Media did walk back the hype not until after blaming it on agw.Oops never mind nothing to see here anymore

    They are even talking about needing a bigger Storm Category scale as Patricia was “off the Scale”.
    I have never seen so much hype about a non event in all my life (68 years).
    The Paris boondoggle is the obvious reason.
    Have you seen the costs for it, 40,000 delegates and 183 million Euros and that is without travel costs.

      There are some people whom it was not a non event! Some people were killed in Guatemala and its neighbors – before the depression grew as a major storm.

      However, I feel that some were quite disappointed when they had the worst storm of the history at hand, and what happened was just a piff.

      Could it be they measured the depression (<900 mb) wrong? One sonde falling in and being broken, given off-calibrated results?

        I am not certain of the 1959 storm track, but this one hit the mountains. Still, the eye wall collapsed very far off shore.

        • David A says:

          The maps show both storm tracks very close. Does anyone know how far apart the storm tracks were at land-fall.

      These go to eleven!

    Who “planned” 320 KPH winds? Freudian slip much?

  4. Alf says:

    So was there damage anywhere consistent with 135 mile per hour winds or was that number a misrepresentation as well.

    120 meter waves. isn’t that about 400 feet, katrina only had 40 foot waves and sandy only had 32 foot waves.

  6. Andy DC says:

    To the true believers and usefull brainwashed idiots, Particia will still remain the worst hurricane EVER, even if it only blew down a few tree limbs and unroofed one slum building about as well contructed as the backyard forts we used to build as kids. Expect a lot of swooning over Patricia’s might at the Paris Boondoggle!
