  1. And he is standing by what he said and is saying with this explanation... I'm also getting a ton of backlash from his followers (some of them) for calling him out. He did the same thing with Laura saying it would max out on Cat 2 (and weaken before landfall) when it was already Cat 3 and eventually turned high end Cat 4. I'm curious what you have to say about his rebuttals to the criticism.
  2. ::Clown:: He's getting blasted on twitter, and still defending himself.
  3. I cant in my brain compute metric without converting it to standard, im sure im not alone in this. But ill admit Metric is obviously superior, standard is so dumb and outdated, we really need to get rid of it.
  4. That's a crazy tornado path, looks like it's trying to break in.

  10. Strong EF1 Tornado w/ 110mph maximum winds confirmed in North Haven, CT. That makes 3 tornadoes in the North Haven/Hamden area in less than 5 years (4 years and a couple weeks exactly) The chance of seeing a tornado in ones lifetime in their hometown is probably very low, let alone 3, let alone on almost a yearly basis. ...EF1 TORNADO CONFIRMED FROM BETHANY TO NORTH HAVEN CT...

  11. I was on Gaylord mt road when it happened and turned around.
  12. North Haven Hamden has seen some shit in the past several years. Not only Feb 13 historic snow but Jan 11 historic 30" in North Haven, jackpot in all of New England, May 18 Hamden tornado, August 16 tornado in North Haven, and todays possible tornado in North Haven/Hamden.
  13. i mean theres a line between epic and seriously risking your life. And up there, during this, today, it's the latter.
  14. I was just watching Fox61 and they were at exit 9 in North Haven and stating it like it was a tornado but i havent seen anything confirmed yet
