And let us not forget and fail to be ambassadors of the point that between 6 and 12,000 people died in the 1900 Galveston hurricane. 

 

118 years later - 2 (that I have heard) in this even stronger storm of Michael. 

 

Anyone who doesn’t appreciate and marvel at that astounding advancement in meteorology and technology ought to have their head examined....

 

Remember these facts the next time a keyboard warrior launches an attack or your drunk uncle rips the “stupid weatherman.”

Doesn’t seem like any trailer parks were in the path of the eye. Those parks always make for the most striking devastation photos. Also, as @Allsnow pointed out in a text last night, homes aren’t built the way there were 25 years ago. Exhibit A - Andrew below. Homes reduced to splinters.

Can we talk about how more than half of global models were showing Michael coming ashore with the mslp in the 990s or low 1000s. The Canadian. The JMA. Even the Navy - after scoring the coup and showing the stronger solutions 6-7 days in advance - caved, and was in the 980s a run or two before landfall. Michael ended up being the 3rd strongest hurricane to ever landfall in the US. :o What gives? Are these models just not tooled to handle Caribbean tropical systems or should we perma ban from 33 going forward?
