which i quoted and responded to.
but do know that they all stem from the equator
if that's the case, find another topic.
So basically, I think you're stretching to make this into a conspiracy
yeah, you're right, i've only been studying and living through them for the better part of 30yrs, but what do i know, right ??
So it seems that you're the one who knows little about hurricanes
You say this happens ~1,000km from the equator
no, you didn't cause if you had, i wouldn't have responded as i did.
I said, and reasonably so, that it forms near the equator
but again, that ^^^ isn't what you said.
and say that there have been numerous hurricanes to have hit New York that took the same general path since 1938
They have six lists of 21 names they rotate through. One a year. Half are male, half are female. Before th 50s they were all feamale. The names are always the same and only retired if a store causes substantial damage. A total of 76 have been retired. So simple math tells us that only 202 names have been used ever. So the odds are not bad at all.
from link above
In 1978, meteorologists watching storms in the Eastern North Pacific began using men's names for half of the storms.

Today, the World Meteorological Organization maintains the lists of Atlantic hurricane names. They have six lists which are reused every six years.
And who is going to suspend elections? The Federal government doesn't have control over elections, those are State controlled. So maybe some states postpone them but I would find that extremely unlikeable and it would only relate to Congressional and local government elections. The selection of electors can be postponed safely due to the fact that electors meet later to cast their ballots for the presidency

yeah, in about 10yrs time ... 270 ? hahahahahahahaha
Well there's about 270 different names used for Hurricanes.....
so 1 in 270
there are nearly 15 named storms per year for decades --> all of which have a name of their own which is retired once assigned.
there are plenty of names to choose from so it is most ironic that the Drill name and this particular storm name are identical.
(not close, not an abbreviation, not slang, not even an "i" vs "y")
yes, i would agree that all of the similarities are beyond coincidence.
seriously man....1997, 10 years ago
back to school for you
based on your logic 15 storms in 15 years...thats 225 not to far off
you made his point

Interesting, one wonders if they could perhaps call off the elections during a "national state of emergency", bring in UN troops to quell riots / looting.....

I wonder if they took nuclear power plants into consideration during the Sandy drill?
Do we have multiple Fukushima events about to take place?
The name 'hurricane' is really just a common named for a tropical cyclone. This type of storm is commonly called a cyclone, hurricane, or typhoon. And, if the strength of the storm is not too intense, we call them tropical depressions or tropical storms. It can all sound very confusing, but the answer is in the longitude where the storm occurs.

A cyclone is both the name for the whirling, organized storms we call a hurricane or typhoon as well as the name for storms in the Indian ocean.
The word typhoon, which is used today in the Northwest Pacific, may be derived from Hindi/Urdu, Persian and Arabic ţūfān (طوفان), which in turn originates from Greek Typhon (Τυφών), a monster from Greek mythologyassociated with storms. The related Portuguese word tufão, used in Portuguese for typhoons, is also derived from Typhon. The word is also similar to Chinese "taifeng" ("toifung" in Cantonese) (颱風 – great winds), and also to the Japanese "taifu" (台風).The word hurricane, used in the North Atlantic and Northeast Pacific, is derived from huracán, the Spanish word for the Carib/Taino storm god, Juracán. This god is believed by scholars to have been at least partially derived from the Mayan creator god, Huracan. Huracan was believed by the Maya to have created dry land out of the turbulent waters. The god was also credited with later destroying the "wooden people", the precursors to the "maize people", with an immense storm and flood. Huracan is also the source of the word orcan, another word for a particularly strong European windstorm.
