Seldom post, but I have to rant. Mods, delete if needed./
I'm by no means well versed in weather, hurricanes, forecasting...you name it. But I strive to learn. I am totally disappointed with the evaluations happening here now. Incompetence, overhype...you name it. We do not as yet have anywhere near the information we need as to the actual longer term effects of Irma, especially given the flooding in Georgia and South Carolina, not to mention millions (that boggels my mind) out of power. How hard is it to wait for a week or two before passing judgement. I happen to be extremely impressed by how well warnings and model info were conveyed; as a novice and learner, I could grasp it. I believe many more would have died had all of this not happened.
