but do know that they all stem from the equator
you really don't know much about hurricanes at all, do ya ??
tip: most of them begin off the coast of Africa, well above the equator ... very few of them approach landfall this far north and even fewer of them
encounter a contributing low pressure along the way.
oh yeah, if you actually look over the history of hurricanes making east coast landfalls, you should also notice that none of them have followed in
Sandy's path except for the "hypothetical" one.
(the 1938 storm tracked similarly but even it showed distinct differences)
coincidence, maybe but more doubtful by the moment.
