Starting comments: Considering the author, I don't anticipate many, if any, issues.

1. Well written: Pictogram resolved.svg Section acceptable

a. prose/copyright: Pictogram resolved.svg Acceptable
b. MoS compliance: Pictogram resolved.svg Acceptable

2. Accurate and verifiable: Pictogram resolved.svg Section acceptable

a. provides references: Pictogram resolved.svg Acceptable
b. proper citation use: Pictogram resolved.svg Acceptable
c. no original research: Pictogram resolved.svg Acceptable

3. Broad in coverage: Pictogram resolved.svg Section acceptable

b. focused/on topic: Pictogram resolved.svg Acceptable

4. Neutral: Pictogram resolved.svg Acceptable

5. Stable: Pictogram resolved.svg Acceptable

6. Image use:

a. license/tagging correct: Pictogram voting question.svg Question - Am I to take from the omission of such a photo that there isn't a picture of the storm itself? I know we're early for satellites, and that the Hurricane Hunters didn't exist at the time, but I wanted to make sure.
b. relevant/properly captioned: Pictogram resolved.svg Acceptable

7. Additional items not required for a GA, but requested by the reviewer:

a. images that should have alt texts have them: Pictogram voting delete.svg Needs work - Would you please consider doing this?
b. general catch all and aesthetics: Pictogram resolved.svg Acceptable

Comments after the initial review: I made two minor sourcing tweaks, which you can look at in the diffs. Other than that, I've left one question, as well as put in a request (that will have no effect on my passing this or not) for you to put in alt texts. This looks to be an easy pass. Exactly what I expected when I decided to do this review. Sven Manguard Wha? 05:02, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the review! I added the alt images, easy enough. Unfortunately, there are no radar images or satellite images. Radar wasn't all that common during the storm, and satellite imagery didn't come around until the 1960s. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 05:08, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Bloody fast response, that. Okay, I'm promoting this now. Sven Manguard Wha? 05:10, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Hah, I wasn't stalking you and clicking the refresh button every minute, I swear :P (I'm actually working on another retired hurricane article now). --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 05:12, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
