Earl and Danielle picture[edit]

Does anyone think it would be a good idea to get a satellite picture with Danielle, Earl, and Fiona before there is a complete extratropical transition of Danielle? Something at a similar degree to the picture in 2009 when there was Ana, Bill, and Claudette.--12george1 (talk) 21:31, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

If you can get it, go for it... Titoxd(?!? - cool stuff) 02:14, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
This image might be the closest to having all three cyclones in one image, but I think the MODIS image in the article already does the job. Wonderworld1995268 (talk) 02:02, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Discussion at WP:ITN regarding inclusion for Main page[edit]

Just to let those here know, discussion continues about the suitability of this topic for WP:ITN's Main page feature. Jusdafax 08:09, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
UPDATE: This article is now included in the 'In the News' section. I'll be happy to help with updates to keep the article fresh. Lotta eyes will be on this! Here's hoping for a minimum of damage and zero casualities, I'd like the big story to be about how the U.S. East Coast dodges a bullet. Jusdafax 12:24, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Incorrect Watch / Warning definition[edit]

This pertains to the template on this page as well as the Watches / Warnings article. There is a watch issued by Environment Canada included in the list on this article. However, it's listed using the NHC watch definition. Environment Canada uses the 24-hour definitions still; see [1].

I'm not good at editing templates. Maybe we should use a different template for east coast hurricanes that need Canadian definitions as well. Mm35173 (talk) 12:32, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

They issued them at the 48 hour point though. The NHC contacted them to issue it early to avoid confusion, it was issued at the same time as in northern New England. CrazyC83 (talk) 16:50, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

According to the watch text, they are issued at the same time the NHC issues them now. That may have been done on the fly but they have changed for Canada as well. CrazyC83 (talk) 18:37, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Earl approaching New England picture[edit]

Like Bob A hurricane that nears or is over New England is rare should a picture of that be included in this article when it is available? - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 14:25, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes. HurricaneSpin Talk 19:54, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Earl Dissipated?[edit]

Why does it say Earl dissipated when you have the NHC forcasting that round September 8th? - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 04:15, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

According to NHC, it says "* Last NHC advisory issued on EARL". HurricaneSpin Talk 05:09, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
According to the NHC [2] the storm is forcasted to dissipate in a few days though? - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 14:35, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
It did not dissipate, it just turned Post-tropical. Darren23Edits|Mail 15:35, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
Plus the NHC stops issuing advisories for tropical systems which are no longer going to affect the United States. Earl was still tropical through most of September 5, but it was no longer in United States waters. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.254.156.82 (talk) 15:06, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
The NHC will continue to monitor storms so long as they are tropical or subtropical. When they issued their final advisory on Earl, it had transitioned into an extratropical cyclone; the Canadian Hurricane Centre continued monitoring Earl until it was absorbed by another system later on September 5. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 15:53, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I mixed up Saturday and Sunday -- should have said 4 September, not 5. According to the summary statement from Environment Canada [3], Earl became extratropical on Saturday night. It was still tropical when it brushed the Îles de la Madeleine (Québec) on Saturday afternoon, but apparently it was moving too quickly to give more than an inch or so of rain. (25 mm = 1 inch) Hmm, since Newfoundland is mentioned, should probably also add the Québec impact. At the very least, the ferries would have been disrupted. - Tenebris —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.254.157.69 (talk) 07:52, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Um, according to this link, it appears to me as if Earl made a loop and is now about 500 miles northwest of the Azores, can someone verify this? HurricaneSpin Talk 23:11, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Not verified, Earl was absorbed by another system almost five days ago. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 01:40, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
