  1. This is a first. Someone was interviewed about their reasoning for not evacuating Emerald Isle. I'll just leave this here hold back my comment. "We have a basement"

    Major Hurricane Florence

    Noted! What’s interesting about the 1933 storm is how similar the setup could be for Florence. Strong ridge over New England coupled with a storm passing to the south then west of DC. The result was a bigger storm surge in DC than in Norfolk. 11 feet for the former, 9 feet for the latter.

    Major Hurricane Florence

    Newbie here but have been passionate about weather my entire life. The closest analogy to this could be the 1933 Chesapeake and Potomac Hurricane. Here is an article from the Washington Post/ the track is even similar. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/capital-weather-gang/wp/2013/08/23/eighty-years-ago-today-the-chesapeake-and-potomac-hurricane/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.b9d6d7921852 As a side, I’m realllly hoping this goes out to sea. I’m flying out of NYC on the 17th for a vacation in the Alps and a visit to Oktoberfest. Stay away Florence!!
