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?

Starred and FLAGGED!!! Nobody is crying in outrage or FEAR?!?!?!?! I knew nothing of the drill... AND STILL i came to this conclusion. This conclusion came to me as hard as any other epiphany I have had in my life.
-The New Yorkers there are locked in. They CANNOT leave and centers with 'help' are there and already setting up
-There talking about setting up "centers" in NYC.
-On the news they justified windows being blown out.
-And when have you EVER known them shutting down such an large region with road blocks to Pennsylvania!!!!! -------- Recently the cable just went off for a moment in the 'deciding state', could that be to final test the national emergency system that was introduced last year or so? Listen how the media is advising the citizens to "embrace" their 'help' that is going 'provided' to them. How the 'elderly' need THIS protection! THEY SHUT DOWN NYSE... come on!!!!! boots could be deployed to ALL major us cities within hours...
Light bulb turn'd da eff on!!!
Remember all of the forums that got no love and spoke of an event???
Whats going to happen to us? Is it to late to leave?
The economy crashing...
the BS smear of the world ending of in 2012?
Possibilities noted of "State of National Security"..
17 other hurricanes previous to make this one Sandy??? WOOOooooow... (flava flav style)
Please someone calm my nerves...

They generally have several paths for a hurricane a week or more ahead. As time goes on, and they get better models of what the jet stream and surrounding winds do, they refine those models.
The biggest tool in refining them are the aircraft that fly around the storm. The NOAA, flies a P-3 that occasionally goes into the storm, a Gulfstream IV that flies above and around it. NASA occasionally flies an ER-2 over the storm. And the USAF Reserve has the guys with cojones of steel, that fly the WC-130Js through the storm repeatedly per flight. They go through up to 10-12 times, crisscrossing the eye from multiple directions dropping radiosondes, that measure the pressure, and wind speeds.
I've seen them come back with engines shut down, wire antennas snapped and wrapped around the airplane, and paint missing from the rain hammering them. The crew got off, preflighted another bird, and went back out as soon as they were legally able to. They're crazy, but they've probably saved an uncountable number of lives with the data that they collect on each flight.
That is the way it has always been described.
He countermanded the original premise of this being joined by a NorEaster and said that a Low Pressure system out of the West with cold air from Canada wrapped around it.
At the same time, an upper level trough is approaching from the west and the interactions between the two will cause Sandy to morph into a hybrid storm, expand, and intensify rapidly. The National Weather Service is doing something very rare: adding more radionsonde (weather balloon) launches (four times a day instead of twice day)...a very wise investment.
