    Never mind the fact that it happened to come assure during a spring tide...pure coincidence in fact, but sinister evidence of man made climate change according to the cult religion...kind of like sacrificing humans to keep the sun coming up every morning.

    None of those are satellite tracks goofy, they are projected drawings set out BEFORE the movement.

    How old are you?

    Did you take your medication

    Ok, now we are getting somewhere. Why is Irma so important to your life? Other than the obvious obsessive compulsive disorder and obvious delusions of grandeur that is.

    Hurricane Irma broke a bunch of meteorological records here are some of the biggest
    https://webcms.colostate.edu/tropical/media/sites/111/2017/09/Hurricane-Irma-Records.pdf

    It'll take months to fully assess the damage to the hardest-hit places, and the recovery and rebuilding process will take years.

    But many of the weather records set by the storm are already clear.

    Meteorologist Phil Klotzbach tracked Irma with a team at Colorado State University's Tropical Meteorology Project. He published the final summary of the milestones the storm hit after Irma was finally downgraded to a tropical depression Monday night.

    You can check out the full list on the CSU site, but here are few of the biggest records the giant storm broke:

    Irma sustained 185-mph winds for 37 hours, the longest any cyclone on the globe has maintained that intensity.

    ****snip****

    Hurricane Irma Meteorological Records/Notable Facts Recap Intensity/Day Measures
    - 185 mph lifetime max winds – tied with Florida Keys (1935), Gilbert (1988) and Wilma (2005) for second strongest max winds of all time in Atlantic hurricane. Allen had max winds of 190 mph in 1980
    - 185 mph lifetime max winds – the strongest storm to exist in the Atlantic Ocean outside of the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico on record
    - 185 mph max winds for 37 hours – the longest any cyclone around the globe has maintained that intensity on record. The previous record was Haiyan in the NW Pacific at 24 hours
    - 914 mb lifetime minimum central pressure – lowest in the Atlantic since Dean (2007) and 10th lowest in satellite era (since 1966)
    - 914 mb lifetime minimum central pressure – lowest pressure by an Atlantic hurricane outside of the western Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico on record
    - First Category 5 hurricane in the Atlantic since Matthew (2016) and first Category 5 hurricane in the tropical Atlantic (7.5-20°N, 60-20°W) since Hugo (1989)
    - 3.25 day lifetime as a Category 5 hurricane – tied with Cuba (1932) for longest lifetime as Category 5 in Atlantic
    - 3 consecutive days as a Category 5 hurricane – the longest for an Atlantic hurricane in the satellite era (since 1966)
    - 12.75 named storm days – the most since Nicole (2016) and tied for 23rd most in satellite era for the Atlantic
    - 11.25 hurricane days – the most since Ivan (2004) and tied for 9th most in satellite era (since 1966) for the Atlantic – satellite-era record is Ginger (1971) with a whopping 19.5 hurricane days
    - 8.50 major hurricane days – the 2nd most in satellite era (since 1966) for the Atlantic – trailing Ivan (2004).

    According to the British Isles, this is one of the dumbest OPs in USMB history.

    That's because what was left of "Irma" went through the Carolinas between the 10th and 11th, pencil brain! It has been long gone for over three days from there. How do you think it stormed Alabama and Georgia but miraculously never went through there! Obviously, you didn't watch the satellite imagery, Irma was no hurricane up there, moron, it was just a tropical low with some cloud and rain at that point which you've already admitted, but you keep right on looking out your window and masturbating as you fantasize on the world trying to deny your ignorance!

    Normally when hurricanes down south finally move up here in the Ohio Valley, it rains buckets for days---- this one weakened so fast that by the time it got here, I think my house got maybe 5 drops of rain. Just another colossal screw up of miscalculation that we deserve for putting yet another part of our culture in the hands of the government they have no business being involved with. They can't even delivery my mail right, but they're supposed to get the weather?

    Those are all fine and good but most of them all overlap the same basic fact: Irma was one of the strongest, largest and longest lived hurricanes on record, but it all occurred far out to sea and only two tiny islands ever really saw any of that. Such high winds were contained right at the eye wall, about 1/100th its total area. Just as a big elephant needs lots of food to live, so did Irma, and once it got down in the straights of Florida with land masses and the dry dry air that was over the eastern seaboard of the USA, it just spun out of gas, especially its lower half, and the only places in the continental US that even saw any real piece of it was the Keys and the Naples region. Shortly after that, it fizzled out pretty quickly, down to about 100 mph at the center by the time it got half way up Florida where NOAA had forecast it to be still at CAT 4 or 3..

    Harvey did far greater damage to the US.
