Thank you[edit]

Whoever made this page, I'd like to thank. This page has had quite innapropriate content earlier but now it's a detailed describer of the event.

As I see it everything is from 1 of 2 sources. Which is fine if it covers enough, but instead of leaving sources as uncited one can use the "ref name" tag and cite the same source so as to cover the whole article and not to have uncited info. Then of course the citations missing would be fair game for removal. Lihaas (talk) 23:51, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

I was wondering if there was a way to cite whole sections... Master of Puppets Call me MoP! :) 01:02, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
Fixed citation stuff. SpencerT♦C 01:15, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Possible Link?[edit]

Is it possible this flooding was from the Tropical Depression that made landfall earlier this week? If so, then it could be included in that article. (Hurricaneguy (talk) 00:02, 26 October 2008 (UTC))


Please do not move an article unless you are given the go ahead for it. I already have a separate article for the cyclone under-construction. They can stay separate so long as there is enough information to keep the flood article stable. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 19:13, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Hurricane Mitch caused heavy deaths due to its flooding.this tropical storm caused the flooding not its remnants.if mitch can have a title page then this storm is worth having one, not something as yemen floods praddy06 (talk) 19:17, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

As I said, I'm making the article now, the flood article isn't going to be the "title page". I just need at least an hour or two to finish it. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 19:21, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
i did not see that.its good u started an article once its finished it can be merged with the main article praddy06 (talk) 19:24, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
Well. Actually the storm wasn't notable at all while the floods are. I think it should be kept as a flood article. -- (talk) 11:10, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
I think the Storm was notable enough to warrant an article with the floods being merged into the impact section Jason Rees (talk) 03:54, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
No. According to the RSMC, it issued the last warning to the system on 23-10-2008 while SUSTAINED MAXIMUM WIND SPEED IS ESTIMATED TO BE ABOUT 15-20 KNOTS. Maybe the floods are caused by the remnants of the system, but the system isn't notable for writing an article itself. --Matthiasb (talk) 19:31, 1 November 2008 (UTC)


Maybe the map could/should be replaced with Image:2008 Yemen rainfall totals 03B.jpg? --Matthiasb (talk) 20:19, 2 November 2008 (UTC)


Probably the track map of this need to be in the meteorological section. Hurricane Typhoon Cyclone 23:02, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

It will be placed in their as soon as somone gets around to writing the article.Jason Rees (talk) 23:20, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
