This article needs a lot of work, these articles from 1900 to 1939 needs to have some sort of structure! Storm05 18:53, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

That's why it's a stub. Jdorje 19:29, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

I upped it to start due to every storm having their own section. Hurricanehink (talk) 23:18, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

  • "the storm struck Texas, bring strong winds to a large area." - grammar
  • "known as the Bahamas hurricane," - is it?
  • Actually, it was technically more like a nickname :P --12george1 (talk) 03:43, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
  • "offshore of Texas" - offshore is already a preposition
  • You should add that H1 dissipated over Arizona. That is very unusual! There is very little mentioned about the system remaining a TS over land so far. You should include some more observations. I believe HURDAT mentioned that El Paso or somewhere near there recorded TS winds, which was the basis for maintaining it so far inland.
  • The damage from H1 in the lede doesn't match the section
  • " 60 to 80 mi (97 to 129 km) " - both pairs of units should be rounded
  • "as well as a score or more injuries" - since "score" is a pretty archaic word, why not just "several" injuries?
  • "Four several and several years ago..."? :P --12george1 (talk) 03:43, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
  • "and telegraph lines, suffered about $365,000 in damage." - drop that last comma
  • "A trough developed near Cape Verde around September 11." - you sure it wasn't a tropical wave? And you don't say that this was the genesis for H2.
  • Hmm, it probably was a tropical wave, which is a trough--12george1 (talk) 03:43, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
  • "the system peaked with maximum sustained winds of 155 mph (250 km/h) and a minimum barometric pressure of 924 mbar (27.3 inHg)." - what was the basis for the estimate for the peak winds?
  • Nothing recorded that wind speed. It was adjusted upward significantly from 100 knots. I'm guess it was due to the pressure-wind relationship? "ship the Potomac recorded 924 mb ... suggests winds of 137 kt and 134 kt from the Brown et al. intensifying hurricane pressure-wind relationships ... Winds analyzed to be 135 kt at 18Z on the 25th, up from 100 kt originally." Should I mention the pressure-wind relationship?--12george1 (talk) 19:17, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
  • You have three separate sentences describing boats being ruined or wrecked in the H2 section. Could you please combine?
  • I'm not sure how I can do that --12george1 (talk) 19:17, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
  • "Further north" - any time you deal with direction or distance, use "Farther"
  • "A devastating tornado was in Fort Lauderdale. The twister damaged a four story hotel, a railway office building, and several cottages." - make one sentence
  • "Historical weather maps indicate that a low pressure area was embedded within a west to east oriented stationary front on September 24." - you should add a general location
  • Unfortunately, the only thing META shows is "northwest Atlantic Ocean." No coordinates are given, so I can't get anymore specific than that.--12george1 (talk) 19:17, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
  • "Early on September 25, a tropical depression formed just west of Bermuda. Later that day, the depression strengthened into a tropical storm." - there are several examples in this article, but this one works well. You have a habit of writing very short, choppy sentences, when one single sentence would work much better.
  • "Four hours later, sustained winds peaked at 60 mph (95 km/h). " - was this based on the ship report?
  • A ship did measure winds of 60 mph, but not at that time.--12george1 (talk) 19:17, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
  • "The extratropical remnants accelerated northeastward and then east-northeastward, before dissipating east-southeast of Newfoundland. - when?
  • "until dissipated well southeast of Newfounland on October 20" - grammar
  • Fixed that and the typo that you didn't notice :P --12george1 (talk) 19:17, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
  • " Strengthening further, the hurricane peaked with maximum sustained winds of 80 mph (130 km/h) and a minimum barometric pressure of 997 mbar (29.4 inHg). - again, on what basis was the peak winds?

All in all, pretty good! ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 02:49, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
