Images for each storm[edit]

I am trying to get an image for each storm, like 2005. I have started uploading ones that aren't on Wikipedia yet, and they are listed below. If you find a better image, feel free to replace it.

I'm in the process of getting them. Hurricanehink 01:33, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

Got them all. Just in case you wanted the Subtropical Storm, I included that as well. Hurricanehink 16:19, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

Subtropical storm - #19?[edit]

Wouldn't it have been numbered as 19L.NONAME and been officially Subtropical Storm 19? I thought that was how they did it before 2002 when they started naming them. CrazyC83 02:14, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

The NRL Navy archive doesn't even have it there for some reason. However, they do have Subtropical Storm Nicole from 2004...
Also, on another note, while looking through the archives to find the answer, I found Cyclone Catarina sat images: [1].
-- RattleMan 03:42, 30 December 2005 (UTC)
The storm wasn't classified operationally. In a post-analysis, it was upgraded to a Subtropical Storm. However, operationally, Reconaissance Aircraft went in, and TWO's mentioned the psossibility of tropical or subtropical development. Hurricanehink 03:48, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Templates[edit]

Shouldn't we use the templates that the 2005 Hurricane Season has for the storms? And shouldn't we do it for most other seasons?Icelandic Hurricane [[http://tools.wikimedia.de/~interiot/cgi-bin/count_edits?user=Icelandic+Hurricane&dbname=enwiki_p]] 01:33, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Huh? "The templates?" What templates? — jdorje (talk) 08:41, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Subtropical Storm?[edit]

Should we write a paragraph for this? I've noted it briefly in the introduction.Momoko

No, the way you did is fine. Hurricanehink 17:54, 16 April 2006 (UTC)
Heh, just read this after I already moved it. I don't think this small bit of trivia belongs in the intro, as it has nothing to do with the season as a whole. As is done in some other articles, I moved it into an "other storms" section. — jdorje (talk) 05:16, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

TDs[edit]

There are sections missing on TD4 (near FL) and TD9 (TX landfall).--Nilfanion (talk) 17:35, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Todo[edit]

Most sections are full, but inline refs are lacking - C-class. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 18:14, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Sorry it took so long, I have finally added the inline refs. Upgrade article to B-class? --12george1 (talk) 01:46, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

  • First, has everything been addressed from the previous GAN?
    • Pretty much everything from the last GAN was fixed.--12george1 (talk) 17:49, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • There needs to be a better source for the opening sentence, since there should be no HURDAT referencing for a record like that.
  • Debatable if Leslie "minimally effected land areas".
    • It did result in a tropical storm watch for Bermuda, but other than that, no effects were felt on land (while it was tropical, anyway). Should I change it to no impact at all?--12george1 (talk) 17:49, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
      • Well, you devote a lot of time to it in the 2nd lede paragraph, so it's just weird. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 18:47, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • You should make an indication somewhere via a note that all damage totals are in 2000 USD. It gets repetitive.
  • "However, the precursor to Tropical Storm Leslie" - how is that contradicting the previous statement? I'm not sure "however" is appropriate.
  • Were Beryl and Debby active at the same time? If not, you shouldn't use "while" as a connector.
  • The table in "season summary" should indicate that it does not include the subtropical storm.
  • "However, La Niña was present it the Eastern Pacific, which was a factor in the activity in the season. " - again, not sure if "however" is appropriate.
  • "Tropical cyclogenesis began in the month of June" - sort of an awkward sentence. I think "first occurred" would be better than "began"
  • " Following an active October, no tropical cyclogenesis occurred in the final month of the season, which is November" - I'd swap "November" and "final month of the season"
  • Was the ACE above normal like the season?
  • "However, it quickly re-strengthened" - the antecedent is unclear, since the subject of the previous sentence is the upper-level low (this is in Alberto's section)
  • Why don't you mention the final dissipation of Alberto? And is the date in the mini-infobox the actual dissipation date of the low or when it became extratropical?
    • Because it is right there in the sentence before. Also, June 23 is when it became extratropical.--12george1 (talk) 17:49, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • You never say in prose when TD 4 was classified/developed.
  • Given that ref 9 is in Mexican pesos, you should probably list the initial damage total for Beryl in pesos followed by USD in parenthesis. Maybe also indicate the website where it was converted in a note?
  • "the system began Tropical Depression Six" - word-o?
  • You should mention that Chris was a TS for only six hours.
  • "As a result, the system likely became Tropical Depression Seven at 1800 UTC on that same day" - huh? TD 7 is the label that the NHC gave it, so "likely" is a poor choice of word.
  • I think the bit about Debby potentially being a major hurricane hitting Florida should be mentioned, possible Andrew redux
  • "Tropical Depression Nine developed on September 9 from an interaction between a low-level trough and a cluster of convection associated with a tropical wave in the Gulf of Mexico. A disorganized low-level center developed 185 miles (295 km) south of Lake Charles, Louisiana on September 8, forming a tropical depression." - you mention "tropical depression" developing/forming twice in two sentences. Try cutting down on the redundancy.
  • "It spawned a low pressure area that gradually developing" - grammar
  • "325 miles (523 km)" - why no rounding for km? (Florence)
    • It was in a conversion template--12george1 (talk) 17:49, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Two consecutive sentences mention "rapidly" in Florence's section. Try cutting down.
    • I fixed the one about it rapidly intensifying, as I doubt it would qualify as "rapid".--12george1 (talk) 17:49, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • "A combination of north-northwesterly shear and lower sea surface temperatures, it again weakened on September 13 and was downgraded back to a tropical storm." - missing verb in the first half
  • "After moving erratically for almost five days, a short-wave trough caused" - did the trough move erratically for five days?
  • "At least 65 homes and businesses were flooded, while numerous coastal roads, including Bayshore Boulevard and the Courtney Campbell Causeway, were caused due to water inundation" - should that be "were closed?"
  • "damaged two condominiums and at least 24 houses" - you need number consistency whether you spell or not
  • Damage total for Gordon?
  • "A somewhat organized tropical wave" - please fix :P
  • When did Isaac affect the UK? That'd be better than "eventually"
    • Between October 3 and October 4, 2000--12george1 (talk) 17:49, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • What were Keith's peak winds? It's never said in prose.
  • "and at least 300 people were affected by flooding in that country" - what does it mean to be affected by flooding? Had to evacuate? Had their commute disrupted?
  • Is the exact rainfall total in Belize known?
    • There was a reported of 32.67 inches (830 mm) of rain in Belize City, which I added.--12george1 (talk) 17:49, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • "In Belize, a village reported that only 12 houses remained" - remained what? And what village?
    • It means that only 12 houses survived the storm, but as for the name of the village, the answer is: "Nope, Chuck Testa!".--12george1 (talk) 17:49, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • "At least 19 people were killed in Belize and damages totaled to $280 million (2000 USD)." - you don't need the "to" in "damaged to"
  • Same as with Beryl, you should list the original damage source in pesos before the USD, and say how you converted it.
  • "In slowly organized" - fix?
  • "with 40,000 acres (160 km²) of farmland inundated with water" - try to avoid two "with"s
  • "Overall, the precursor system of Leslie resulted in about $950 million (2000 USD) in damage, slightly more than half of that figure was agriculture related." - there's a missing conjunction for the last clause
  • "The low pressure area slowly formed a circulation" - I thought a LPA was a circulation?
  • " satellite classifications using the Hebert-Poteat technique" - what is that?
  • "though initially it was erroneously classified as Tropical Depression Seventeen" - why erroneously?
    • Because when Michael became tropical, it was immediately a tropical storm, and not a depression.--12george1 (talk) 17:49, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • "In mid-October 2000" - we know the year
    • Hmm, do I replace it with Y2K?--12george1 (talk) 17:49, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

That's it for now. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:46, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:2000 Atlantic hurricane season/GA3. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

Reviewer: Hurricanehink (talk · contribs) 00:21, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

I reviewed this article previously, so I'm still pretty familiar with it. It's really close to GA status.

  • From the previous GAN, one of the problems was that you lump Leslie in with other storms causing minimal damage in the lede, but then you highlight how much damage the precursor did. I suggest removing Leslie from the end of the first paragraph.
  • For some reason, the "notes" section has a numbering problem.
  • As with before - "However, La Niña was present it the Eastern Pacific, which was a factor in the activity in the season. " - again, not sure if "however" is appropriate."
  • "However, it quickly re-strengthened" - the antecedent is unclear, since the subject of the previous sentence is the upper-level low (this is in Alberto's section)
  • You should mention in Alberto's section when the extratropical storm dissipated.
  • Given that ref 9 is in Mexican pesos, you should probably list the initial damage total for Beryl in pesos followed by USD in parenthesis. Maybe also indicate the website where it was converted in a note? Ditto with Keith. If you need help, I can help with this.
    • This was fixed before you even wrote this review--12george1 (talk) 04:40, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
      • No, it should be something like what I do here. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:30, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
  • "and at least 300 people were affected by flooding in that country" - what does this mean?
    • The source does not specify [2]--12george1 (talk) 04:40, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
      • So why did you include it then? --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:30, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
  • "Overall, the precursor system of Leslie resulted in about $950 million (2000 USD) in damage, slightly more than half of that figure was agriculture related." - there's a missing conjunction for the last clause. Either add a semicolon after damage, or change the "was" to "from" and cut the "related"
  • "The low pressure area slowly formed a circulation" - I thought a LPA was a circulation? What happened here exactly?
    • Rewrote; the NHC didn't even mention a circulation at that time--12george1 (talk) 04:40, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
  • " satellite classifications using the Hebert-Poteat technique" - what is that? There is no link to it.
  • Remove the "2000" from TD 9's section.

Everything else is good though! --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 00:21, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
