AccuWeather’s new RealImpact™ Scale for Hurricanes will revolutionize damage predictions for greater public safety  

 

The Saffir-Simpson scale on its own doesn’t capture all the severe impacts of hurricanes and tropical storms, such as coastal storm surge and flooding rainfall, which, on average, are the primary cause of death and destruction due to hurricanes    

 

The AccuWeather RealImpact Scale for Hurricanes categorizes hurricanes and tropical storms on a six-point scale. Like the Saffir-Simpson scale, the AccuWeather RealImpact Scale for Hurricanes uses the 1 to 5 rating, but also adds an additional rating of “Less than 1.”  

 

Hurricane Barry is expected to be a 2 on the AccuWeather RealImpact™  https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/accuweathers-new-realimpact-scale-for-hurricanes-will-revolutionize-damage-predictions-for-greater-public-safety/70007111

Defenders of the status quo are always stronger than reformers seeking change, 
UNTIL the status quo self-destructs from its own corruption, and the reformers are free to build on its ashes.

50 years ago today there’d been 1 storm and a weak El Niño ended.

 

Atlantic ramped up starting today and had 18 storms, 12 hurricanes, 5 majors

Will 2019 be like 1969? Not this week, but a little later?
