Date[edit]

The date of Hurricane Faith is NOT listed in this article. Why is it not? What is wrong with the author of the article to leave out the days of the hurricane's existence??????? -—Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.34.44.49 (talkcontribs)

Will you chill. There are your dates. Happy?

Track[edit]

Is it possible to create a track, it would be very useful. 12.220.47.145 23:15, 11 October 2005 (UTC)

Ditto. A track, if possible, would be excellent for this article. Ttownfeen 04:30, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
Jdorje has an interesting computer program that generates hurricane tracks. I'll see if he could create one for Faith. -- Hurricane Eric - my dropsonde - archive 05:23, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
Its not bad, would like to see it go all the way into the Russian artic, but still very good. Thanks. 12.220.47.145 03:23, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

Todo[edit]

Better intro, more impact. And...this storm does not deserve an article. Jdorje 01:11, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Uhh, yeah it does, it's trek north is unmatched by any northern hemisphere tropical cyclone on record. -- §Hurricane ERIC§ archive -- my dropsonde 23:22, 23 January 2006 (UTC)
So what? We denied the january subtropical storm an article, even though that accomplishment is even more notable. But articles should be created based on impact, not based on trivia. Jdorje 00:16, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
If this is a question on notability, why don't we bring it up on the project talk? Hurricanehink 03:35, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Maybe another record[edit]

Faith, according to the MWR, became extratropical while at about 6 degrees west longitude. That has to be the farthest east an Atlantic tropical cyclone has traveled. It came painfully close to crossing the Prime Meridian! Wow. -- HurricaneERIC - Class of '08: XVII Maius MMVIII 07:03, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

  • "Hurricane Faith reached the northernmost latitude of any tropical cyclone" - this implies worldwide. Is that true?
  • It very well be worldwide. However, the source implies it was only Atlantic, so I will revise it as the latter.--12george1 (talk) 02:39, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
  • "Continuing westward" - "Tracking westward" - one is pretty redundant to the other. I'd recommend cutting "continuing westward", since the same sentence says "continuing to slowly strengthen."
  • "outerbands" - is that one word?
  • You mention "Category 1" without SSHS ever in the whole article.
  • "The storm nearly maintained intensity" - I don't get the "nearly"
  • "Three others drowning deaths" - grammar?
  • "Gradually intensification" - grammar?
  • Why did Faith initially weaken near the Leeward Islands?
  • Cannot be determine with the Preliminary Report or MWR.
  • Why did Faith turn to the northeast? (did you try weather summary for August or September 66?)
  • Was there any additional info in the MWR? (hint, yes, with regards to when the extratropical cyclone dissipated) Also, the infobox is wrong, it didn't dissipate on the 6th.
  • It might be neat having the insert map included in the MWR, with its ET track near the North Pole. Not required for GA, but it'd be nice.
  • What was the basis for Faith's peak winds? Ship reports? Recon? Land?
  • That cannot be determined either.--12george1 (talk) 02:35, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
  • "The extratrpical remnants of Faith headed westward and affected Norway" - did it move across Europe to strike Norway from the east? Also, typo.
  • Watch for unit rounding in the MH.
  • "by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration" - I think people would be less confused if you said "by NASA", a rare circumstance where the acronym is probably better known.
  • Compromised and added NASA in parenthesis after it.--12george1 (talk) 05:08, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
  • "to shut down 45 minutes after the rocket lifted off" - was it for 45 minutes, or 45 minutes afterward it was shut off permanently?
  • It shut down 45 minutes after the rocket was launched, but I can't determine from the source if it was permanent.--12george1 (talk) 05:08, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
  • In the lede, you said - "the outerbands of Faith produced gale force winds in the region, especially Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Antigua." - but the impact doesn't mention anything about gales in the latter two territories. Unless they're included in "across nearby islands and Puerto Rico". In which case, why specify in the lede but not impact?
  • Given how close it was, any impact in Bahamas?
  • "Five people died as a result of the storm" - this contradicts the infobox. Also, it contradicts the source, which says only four deaths.
  • Is that all the impact? It feels a bit lacking.

That's it for now. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 02:12, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Faith's ET track[edit]

@Titoxd: @Cyclonebiskit: @Iune: @Keith Edkins: @Reub2000: @Atomic7732: @Bobby122: @Supportstorm:@Landsf12: @Meow: @Krit-tonkla: @JordanKyser22: Is it possible to update Faith's track map in order to add its extratropical stage? ABC paulista (talk) 03:09, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Do you mean to add the track after the 7th? It can be done, but it would be in a way that is a little unorthodox. i.e. I would be extracting points from existing maps. I'd just wait a few years for the reanalysis to catch up to this storm. Supportstorm (talk) 04:47, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
This? File:Faithinsertmap.png -- Meow 05:25, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
The reanalysis for Faith should be available within 2 years or so. The reanalyzed track actually breaks the track map generator a bit since it's excessively long. The insert map is perfectly acceptable for now. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 17:32, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
So, it will be done, or it's better for us to wait until reanalysis? ABC paulista (talk) 20:25, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
I can't release the reanalyzed track to Wiki since it's not official yet, so it's best to wait until it's published in HURDAT. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 20:29, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
And what about the original track? Couldn't it be completed with ET track, at least until the reanalysis be published? ABC paulista (talk) 02:51, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
There are no actual data points available for that portion as far as I'm aware. We'd have to breach WP:OR to procure our own from that map. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 03:51, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
