NOAA[edit]

Apologies to poster from IP address 141.155.145.33, but I've gotten lots of information from a NOAA. - Ta bu shi da yu 08:31, 14 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Todo[edit]

Lots of info here. The impact section needs better structuring, and the intro isn't long enough. Jdorje 21:15, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Protection[edit]

This article desperately needs it. Just look at the history. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.245.76.111 (talk) 22:59, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Protection is unnecessary at this point, as the levels of vandalism aren't exceptionally high. –Juliancolton | Talk 23:01, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
I just have too high standards then. Oh well. 71.245.76.111 (talk) 23:04, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

New England and Canada[edit]

"In Vineyard Vines, electronic stores reported their best business sales in years, with supplies of D-batteries being cleaned off the shelves."

I'm guess that's meant to say Martha's Vineyard, but I didn't want to change it in case there is a place somewhere else in New England called that. The current link is to a clothing store that opened seven years after the storm. Sahasrahla (talk) 21:40, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

  • Remove dab from top.YE Pacific Hurricane 23:07, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
    • Why? People might be looking for the Bob of 79 or 85. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 01:06, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
      • Didn't WPTC agree to not have dab's at the top of pages (and in the see also section instead)?YE Pacific Hurricane 04:29, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
        • That's only for storm articles with the year. The retired storms can certainly keep the dab. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 11:12, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
  • "Operationally the system was not declared a tropical depression until 0600 UTC on August 16 after a reconnaissance mission into the storm found a closed circulation and flight level winds of 37 mph (60 km/h).[2]" comma before the. YE Pacific Hurricane
  • "The storm slowly intensified as convection was displaced from the center of circulation; however, upper-level outflow was well-defined and intensification of the storm was expected as it tracked over the Gulf Stream.[4] " I'd link to atmospheric circulation inestead of eye (cyclone))
  • " By 0600 UTC, Hurricane Hunters recorded flight level winds of 140 mph (225 km/h), corresponding to surface winds of 115 mph (185 km/h). "link to Hurricane Hunters IMO. YE Pacific Hurricane 23:07, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
  • "Significantly cooler sea surface temperatures in the path of the hurricane resulted in weakening, leading to the eye becoming cloud-filled. Later on August 19, the western portion of the eyewall brushed the eastern tip of Long Island" how cool were the SSTs's? 25C? 26C?
  • Why does watches and warnings have it's own section? It is in any other TC ASFASIKOF? YE Pacific Hurricane
    • That was another editor's choice, and I believe it works well for Bob, due to the many upgrades/downgrades. I'm not sure what ASFASIKOF is... --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 01:06, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
    • As Far as I know of.YE Pacific Hurricane
  • "In the Bay of Fundy, fishermen were urged to return to port in fears of large swells from Hurricane Bob.[20]" can this one-sentence paragraph be combined with anther due to its small size.YE Pacific Hurricane
    • I think it's fine on its own. It's not like it's its own section. It's only a mini-Canada paragraph. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 01:06, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
  • "Before Bob made landfall in New England, it passed directly over Block Island, Rhode Island." wtf is Block Island? Wikilink it please. YE Pacific Hurricane
    • Block Island is fuckin wikilinked biotch! (check lede) --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 01:06, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
  • "was replaced with "Bill" in the 1997 season.[65]" How is this relavant to the article? YE Pacific Hurricane
    • Because the name was retired due to this storm. We always list what the replacement name is. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 01:06, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
      • What does that have to do with the storm though. I am trying to set a precedent for other articles. YE Pacific Hurricane 04:29, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
        • Because this storm was retired and the name was replaced. That's all encyclopediac info. If you want to change stuff, you should propose it. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 11:12, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Nice job finding so much impact! However, I am going to leave this article on hold for now. YE Pacific Hurricane 23:07, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
