Generally, it's pretty good. One thing, though. A source is needed for the $100 million (1999 USD) total. --Hurricanehink (talk) 17:14, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Based on our current, more stringent grading criteria, I'm lowering it to start class. More ANYTHING would be good. – Chacor 15:55, 6 January 2007 (UTC)


Nice article, not too sure why TC Vance has been rated at Cat4, there is no doubt it was a Cat5, wind estimates are signifacntly lower than actual. Commonwealth Bureau Of Meteorology also notes TC strength maintained for well over 24 hours after coastal crossing - will add refs. Hoxygt 03:44, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Your right, it's definitely a Cat 5 storm. I'll try to change it in the article. RaNdOm26 06:34, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

I have removed the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale heading as noted in - this rating scale only applies to systems in the Western Hemisphere. I will note in body of article that Vance met requirements of SSHS rating of 5 as it had wind gusts >280kph 'estimated' central pressure at peak of 910hPa with an estimated storm surge of "over 5m".

Please do NOT remove it from the infobox. The infobox should have the SSHS equivalent as analysed by either the JTWC, or a conversion of 10-minute BOM winds. – Chacor 03:00, 7 January 2007 (UTC)
Ok MY mistake as you can see I'm a mere beginner. It seems I was also incorrect to note that Vance made SSHS Cat5 status since its mean winds were too low. Out of interest why do all Tropical Cyclone systems on Wikipedia receive a SSHS equivalence rating? Is there history I could read on this? Or is it simply an attempt to provide an across the board rating system? Hoxygt 10:34, 7 January 2007 (UTC)
I think the SSHS category is there so that the cyclone can be compared with hurricanes in the USA/Caribbean using the same category system. RaNdOm26 05:16, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, SSHS is just in here to provide a global equivalence.--Nilfanion (talk) 08:07, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
