The intro has no useful information. There are two sections on the Fort Lauderdale storm. There are no inline references. Jdorje 02:12, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Also there were 9 storms this season, but only 8 are mentioned. Jdorje 02:57, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

I just added information on the ninth storm to the article. CapeVerdeWave 20:14, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Five was probably a fishspinner-since its the last storm-shall we add it?HurricaneCraze32 19:53, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

It needs at least a brief description of TS 5 to be a start.--Nilfanion (talk) 22:25, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Picture of Man and Surge[edit]

I found a picture of a man and a huge wave headed towards him in a book that comes from the NOAA historic hurricane collection that occurred during Hurricane 8 or Hurricane "King". Does it have any place here or should it be put on a separate article? (talk) 06:55, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Added a couple names[edit]

The Air Weather Service (AWS) named tropical cyclones from the phonetic alphabet at least as early as 1947. For now, I've only included the two names which were easily accessible via internet, but there is a text source for all the names used. Thegreatdr (talk) 14:46, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
