    2018 Mid-Atlantic General Severe Discussion

    Not too shabby looking.

    Wait, really? Just the connection to tropical remnant spinups or something different?

    These suckers are moving fast:

    Major Hurricane Irma

    The 2011 population in Barbuda was only 1,638. If it really did kill 1,000+, that's a sizable chunk of the whole civilization.

    915 is 1mb short of Janet's intensity in Chetumal.

    932 now. Surely this is the last reading before it's gone with the wind?

    Major Hurricane Irma

    Whatever the update interval is for the Barbuda station, it had a 10 mb drop within it. EDIT: That is if I'm using the same one as y'all? https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/stationhome.html?id=9761115#sensors

    I don't know about the number of TW's, but Ivan holds the records for the most tornadoes, so I'd imagine he would also hold the record for TW's as well?

    The really sickening part of this will be the duration. At least with Katrina's surge, once it came in, that was it--weather conditions didn't hamper rescue efforts. People are going to be dying with no hope of help for potentially days.

    That's a once-in-a-lifetime kind of picture. Stadium effect from the ground, lightning in the eyewall, and an eye clear enough to see the stars. Harvey made a lot of weenie dreams come true.

    This almost always happens and it drives me crazy. Blame the anemometers. It's also possible some of the more impressive observations haven't been reported yet, I guess.

    Definitely, this is the most full-package storm that the US has seen since Hugo. It's just classic.

    Something that isn't mentioned a lot, but I've always found interesting: The people who survive this are still in for potentially years of psychological effects. I can't find it anymore, but I read a research paper one time about survivors of Hugo and Andrew's eyewalls developing full-fledged PTSD. (The end of this page mentions a Hurricane Janet survivor still waking up with nightmares 20 years later: http://www.canebeard.com/andrew.html)
