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.
So let's see 1 out of 202 - the odds are 99.5% of not being named Sandy and .5% being named Sandy. Combine this with the drill on 9/11 of a plane hitting the world trade center, the weather channel's special on a hurricane Katrina, and many other "drills" that happened right before a disasters. There was a whole tread on drills that turned out to be true.
What's so hard to believe that the military or other people in power, have ways to predict/cause disasters? You think they would share it? Is it more logical to believe all these drills were just coincidences or more logical to believe they have secret tech they won't share?
Because I spent a good part of my like in the military and other government agencies and the weather cause trouble for us all the time. I think if we might have used to help us do certain things that we did not because of weather instead of using it to cause a storm that happens to have the same name as one of thousands of hurricane drills from 15 years ago. Considering how many scenerios they drill every single year each with a hurrricane name I would say it would expected that over the course of a decade one might match up. And the the things about drills is you drill for things you expect to happen. That is the entire point of them.
