Talk:Four-State Tornado Swarm/GA1
- I'm placing the article on hold to allow contributors time to address my concerns. Cheers, Nikkimaria (talk) 02:09, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Writing and formatting
- Consider adding at least one more paragraph to the lead
- Is there a better section title than "Synopsis"?
- "a strong northwest wind an hail stones" - grammar
- Given that some tornadoes affected more than one state, might you title the table "Tornadoes by state of origin" or something similar?
- Quotes that are not complete sentences should have ending quotation mark before punctuation
- "but only slightly injured" -> "but was only slightly injured"
Accuracy and verifiability
- Make sure that all quotations have citations
- Citations needed for:
- "leveled with the ground"
- "feared mortally wounded."
- A house's roof was destroyed, with pieces scattered 0.75 miles (1.2 km) away
- Pieces of the house were found 3 miles (4.8 km) distant. A barn was "taken and entirely carried off" by the tornado, and was not found.
- hail stones weighing more than 1 ounce (28 g) damaged crops and broke windows.
- One author's name is spelled both "Ludlum" and "Ludlam" in the references. Which is correct?
- Rather short for a good article, but covers the topic well
- Take a look at WP:WTA - certain words introduce an editorial bias and should be avoided
No issues noted
- The image is tagged to be recreated using vector graphics
- Not required, but I personally would appreciate a similar map showing the approximate paths of the tornadoes
