Pretty good for a storm that doesn't have a lot of info about it. I've put it at start for now. Cite web formatting would be helpful, as well as some minor rewriting of the storm history to make it seem less like the TCR itself. I'll take a look at it later. --Coredesat 23:10, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
"Offshore, a blind man was undertaking a challenge to become the first blind man to cross the Atlantic alone; he encountered rough seas and high winds from the storm, causing $8,000 in damages to his ship over a two-day span." Is this notable enough to be in such detail in the lead? Is there something more to say about this "blind sailor", like how does a blind sailor sail? Never mind; probably off topic, but does nit warrant such a mention in the lead?
I think it does actually. While searching for information, I found tons of news reports on this guy, I'm also confused as to how he was sailing blind, but there is no additional detail for the article. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 00:01, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Is it not unusual for a storm to start in North Caroline and end up flooding the Iberian Peninsula and Italy? Should not more be said about the weather factors causing this? (As a general reader who knows little about weather but who pays attention to tropical storms and hurricanes, I am curious about this.)
Storms have reached the Iberian Peninsula several times before, some have tracked from the Gulf of Mexico to the Scandinavian Peninsula. As for reaching Italy, it was only the moisture from the storm. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 00:01, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
File:Hurricane Arlene (1987).JPG seems generally useless in conveying any information. What is it supposed to be showing, as it is unclear where the location is?
Torrential rain in Bermuda? The total was under 2"! What are the monetary units used for the $8000 in damage? There is at least one instance of improper capitalization. Thegreatdr (talk) 01:29, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
I forgot to ask you about rainfall. Do you have a source for the rainfall in Bermuda DR? (I keep forgetting that we have a meteorologist on the site) Cyclonebiskit (talk) 01:55, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
It's on the TC maximum rainfall page on the HPC website. While there are no maps for Bermuda, the amounts are listed within the table. Same is true for other islands such as Guam and American Samoa. Thegreatdr (talk) 09:10, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
