Ah! I was so hoping for Hulksmashcane. That would be such a cool name for a hurricane ... much better than the tame names they get now.

Can you just see someone like Shepard Smith reporting on Hulksmashcane?

At least no one's tried to cram "armageddon" somewhere in the name there yet

You must be a real hoot at parties. Lighten up, Francis.


People have very short memories and tend to think something somewhat uncommon, but well-recorded over the ages is new. This phenomena is not new. The overhype isn't either, but a little light reading should tamp that down.

The Perfect storm, 26 years ago had a scenario quite similar as 2 huge storm fronts collided and swirled around each other and turned into a wicked huge Nor' Easter.

This is what happened in New England...

The Perfect Storm

Also made a great book and movie!

Try 2 weeks without electricity after Frances/Ivan/Jeanne in the middle of FL summer. Nothing like walking around a Baked Human day in & day out


I was there then, we got hit by Charley too, 4 hurricanes in 6 weeks, fun times. No electric for 8 days with Charley.

My grandmother was just north of Punta Gorda, just outside of the Finger of God wind zone. They didn't have power for almost a month down by her. I was up in the Tampa area, we thought our proverbial goose was cooked. Imagine our dumbfounded surprise when it hung that hard right on a dime down there.

For f#'s sake.

Yes, hurricanes can "collide", or more accurately, one can be absorbed by another. Most often, they just do a dance & "orbit" each other, it's called the Fujiwhara Effect, and it's NOT NEW. Hurricane Iris in '95 didn't turn into a super hurricane after it ate Karen, now did it?
And it does not indisputably lead to a superstorm on it's own, because you need more than just "Oops, another hurricane - BOOM! Hulksmash'cane!" The proximity of each other leads most often to weakened ones because hello --wind variation disturbing the structure of each storm

Here's an old article that'd do people some good to read, at least it could be learned from, as opposed to just peddling inaccurate doom porn from a crappy Youtuber.
www.accuweather.com...


pretty much what i was thinking in my head. Where is the added energy to the storm? HEAT.. 2 hurricanes will not add energy. They will add more WATER only. so if flooding is an issue in your area and this is headed your way..

im east coast not in the north.. Ive seen plenty of hurricanes. You can be shut down for a week. have water and food you can eat without cooking.. or have gas camping stoves or make a fire... Any way have clean water.. We always filled containers with tap water before it hit.
dont sleep near big glass windows..
use a weather radio.
read books in candle light to your kids.

thats about it.

ive seen some real #. trees breaking in half.. mom crying.. house didnt break, trees missed the house. we were in the basement anyway. Stay up to date. Be informed. Stay safe.

I was Lake Wales, Winter Haven area, watched the house across the street taken apart by the wind, mobile home. It hit the coast as a Cat 5, and came over us 60 miles inland as a Cat 4.

ETA, Yeah I am that guy, here hold my beer, I want to check this out

So well explained, such a beautiful doom porn. A first of its kind storm, biggest ever. Almost make you wish to be real. Lets go buy can soup and batteries.

Sandy left me without work for 3 days last time, we'll se if this thing can break that record.


Toilet paper tho...

Thanks for the heads up. Living in the south means I'll keep an eye on this storm as it's the last thing I need to add to my life right now.

Not going to happen, at least in the near future. I suppose for the doomporn enthusiasts, it could later in the hurricane season.

All that is out there is a weak tropical storm and a disturbance off of Africa. The tropical storm will miss the Eastern seaboard, while the disturbance has potential for development. They will interact with each other and become a superstorm.

www.nhc.noaa.gov... is the source for US tropical systems.

One computer model(that has been overly bullish all season) show the disturbance becoming a hurricane. While it is way to soon to speculate a path, that computer model takes the storm east of the US.

I only lived in FL for 6 years, but the National Hurricane center was always one of my bookmarks. It us when not if scenario. Central FL had not been hit for 42 years, we had three in 6 weeks in 2004, 4 if you count Ivan.

Born and raised in KC, lived in CO for 16 years, I have lived on the coast for a total of 9 years of my life, and have experienced 4 hurricanes, 5 with Ivan.

I live right outside of Philly, about 2 hours from the NJ coast. Sandy left us without power for a week.


I'm south of Philly closer to the shore. The power grid here in South Jersey is HORRIBLE. We dodged a bullet with Sandy but that derecho from 2012 left a lot of the area without power for up to a week. I think we went 3 days. It was a pain in the ass, even with a decent generator to power the essentials. I don't even want to consider being without power for a week. Jesus.

Apparently, I went a week without power after Charley. I lived in a somewhat rural area so us neighbors got together for coffee.

I am from Cocoa Beach. We got it from Frances in Jeanne in '04, Charlie got Orlando and we were for enough east to avoid hurricane conditions. Ivan hit the panhandle and I went gulfside chasing surf. We saw nothing but a heavy squall when Ivan's remnants did a bizarre loop and redeveloped.

Nothing to doom about at the moment, though 91L, the disturbance off of Africa has potential.

Also tropical storm Gert looks much stronger, it will be interesting to see what the 11pm advisory says.

Does governor Chris Christie know about this?

I took one vacation to Florida. Andrew blew in a week after I left and I watched all the places I'd visited get destroyed.
