    I’m just impressed that Anderson Cooper is standing in the water all at. How long did it take to convince him to put aside his 3 piece suit and $2,000 shoes?

    That is from 10 years ago. Hurricane Ike in Texas. He wasn't pretending or lying about anything.

    It's a mockery.

    Really! kudos to Cooper for agreeing to stand in a ditch and tell more lies. Cooper is a real trooper!

    Sorry guys. They don't inflate weak storms ... I am someone who follows almost every storm out there and has looked at tremendous amounts of historical weather data I am going to tell you one thing ... any increase in the number of storms is negligible statistically. The number of weak storms has remained constant since we started seeing them accurately in the late 60's and early 70's. There may be an increase in major hurricanes over time but the numbers are really too small to know how to treat it (for now). Also, these storms are measured by instruments. You can watch it come in while they are flying through the storms. There have been some anomalous storms in recent memory but, then again, so was the 1933 hurricane season. We see new things every year because we are relatively new at this ...

    The potential tropical cyclone nomenclature came from the Aug Louisiana 2016 storm that had a $10 billion price tag to it and was 1) not taken seriously because it didn't have a name and 2) didn't get covered in the media for the same reason. 13 people lost their lives in that flood and nobody knew about it. It is one of the best things they have done in the last few years. That particular storm would still not count in storm totals because it never become a depression. That nomenclature allows emergency management personnel to be on top of things when there is a risk something could happen in short order. It would have been tremendous to have had some lead time in 2016.

    They have been doing invests for a while and those are not storms either. They are areas of concern. The public used to not care about that stuff and now it is all over the news. Since it is public data and we all have the internet now, we can all go look at it. Blame the press, but the people that have been doing this for decades make changes when it improves methodology (F scale vs. EF scale, mods to the Saffir Simpson scale are long overdue)

    It is important to recognize that there are very specific requirements to name storms.

    The biggest cause of the increase in number of tropical storms was the invention of weather satellites. The biggest cause of the increase in number of tornadoes was portable cameras and velocity/dual pol radar which makes it much more reliable to detect them early so someone can get out there and film it. People who study this for a living would tell you as much.

    Go look yourself ... I put together a dashboard last season to make this very point.

    orry the map only works if you are logged in as me ... the storm counts should be accurate.

    Yes, it is technology that now allows every storm to be noted and recorded. But, there is no appreciable increase in tropical storms. Not in quantity and not in severity. It's just that we can now pick up every depression developed off the coast of Africa and track it until it either develops into a named storm and hits land somewhere, or it merely fizzles out in the cold Atlantic Ocean.

    Ditto with tornadoes. Technology, and IDIOTS! who chase 'em,* are capturing every tornado formed, whereas in decades past, there might have been some suspicion there had been one, but could not be confirmed. There is no increase in numbers, or severity, of tornadoes either.

    * I called 'em IDIOTS, but I want to do that too, at least once.

    As for the Weather Channel...I like it. They do an overall good job....just drop the sensationalism, please. I remember someone said, or posted, that he lives along the Gulf Coast and was not concerned about the news of an approaching storm. Surely it would be just another of many he had seen. Then! he saw Jim Cantore was in his town, so he knew it must be serious!

    Re: Weather Channel Reporters

    The reporting on the damage is just stupid. They will harm efforts to get people help because no one will believe the real damage. There is plenty of damage out there. They may not be in the areas impacted, but there is lots of flooding going on. It is too bad these yahoos have to fake it. Why not just tell the truth? I know they don't have as much fun when they come out of the wind tunnel, but the truth is, people have died and others need help. Their antics will make people not believe the truth when they see it.

    They're all mimicking Dan Rather from Carla way back in 1961. He stood on the sea wall in Galveston and made a name for himself. He was only a reporter for the local Houston CBS affiliate then. Maybe he was faking it, too, like he did later at CBS.

    Be careful. Jocelyn White is Tech77's sister (no joke). Except, I don't think she did weather, did she? I seem to recall she had some kind of local TV show (real estate, maybe?) on every Sunday morning here in DFW.

    She started out as a weather lady, but changed later. I think she was on channel 4.
