Re: Halloween Hurricane

Aw come on, no one was confused about its strength. Guess he should have read your posts here on SailNet. Next timne forward them to him.

Sandy was covered and talked about from days away. I have access to the NY TV stations and they were talking about flooding and surge 5 days out. Bloomberg certainly could and I am sure did call experts from the NHC many times. Unless you lived under a rock you knew this was called a superstorm, perfect storm, Frankenstorm. Everyone knew that this was a merge storm.

Why would the NHC call it a hurrican once it lost what defines it as a hurricane. Early on the were talking about it beconing and extra-tropical storm and why.

Actually it worked out for those homeowners in MD who had things happen to their homes with regards to their insurance and NOT being classified as a hurricane. It is my understanding that when it is classified as a hurricane a special provision kicks in in my insurance which works in the benefit of the insurance company.
