Seeing as it's only a few words long, is it possible to merge it with the impact section? –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 04:02, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

  • " this storm developed from a large low pressure area over the northwestern Caribbean Sea on October 3. " "this" to "the". YE Pacific Hurricane 17:15, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
  • "Late on October 5, the hurricane struck Bahia Honda Key, Florida, with winds of 105 mph (165 km/h) and near Flamingo about two hours later. " something just seems weird here, especially the "of 105 mph (165 km/h) and near Flamingo" bit. Maybe "Late on October 5, the hurricane struck Bahia Honda Key, Florida, with winds of 105 mph (165 km/h) and two hours later, hit Flamingo." YE Pacific Hurricane
  • "In Cuba, homes and cattle were swept away by flash flooding." link to flash flooding. YE Pacific Hurricane
  • You should note in the MH the name "Fox" does not exist in HURDAT. YE Pacific Hurricane 17:15, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
  • "Several hours later, the storm intensified into a Category 1 hurricane." on what scale? YE Pacific Hurricane 17:15, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
  • The Fetal Heart Rate Classifications scale, of course :P --12george1 (talk) 19:13, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
  • "Prior to reanalysis in 2014, it was thought that Fox briefly strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 135 mph (215 km/h)," 115 knots is technically 130 mph though?
  • Yeah. There was something else wrong there, but I fixed it --12george1 (talk) 19:13, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
  • "A total of 26 bulletins were released by the Miami Weather Bureau office.[2] " importance? YE Pacific Hurricane 17:15, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
  • "The cyclone produced a storm surge of 4.5 feet (1.4 m) on Biscayne Bay. Rainfall exceeded 9.5 inches (241.30 mm) at the Miami airport station, inundating many streets in the city and in Hialeah, Homestead, Miami Beach, Miami Springs. In Hialeah, the city mayor reported water depths of 3.5 ft (1.1 m) in the streets." consistently abbreviate units here since you do it everywhere else. YE Pacific Hurricane 17:15, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
  • "Bermuda was also impacted by the hurricane. " think we know this already, just merge it with the next sentence. YE Pacific Hurricane 17:15, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the review, YE! I think everything should be good now--12george1 (talk) 19:13, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
