Good content. All that's really needed is a better intro. Jdorje 07:53, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Hello Hurricanehink, I am going to be reviewing this article today.

  • "The seventh named storm and fifth hurricane (including one unnamed hurricane),[1] Gladys" - Two issues. (1. Was Gladys the seventh named storm and fifth hurricane ever record? Or was it part of some season? :P (2. The "unnamed hurricane" you speak of was actually a subtropical storm.
  • "becoming a hurricane before striking Cuba on October 16." - Wikilink Cuba
  • "Homosassa on the western coast of Florida on October 19." - You should probably wikilink Florida, even though nobody lives there :P
    • Ehh, it's common enough :P --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 04:59, 24 December 2013 (UTC)
  • "While passing west of the Florida Keys" - Wikilink the Florida Keys?
    • Ehhh, it's common enough! :P (OK, I will link those) --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 04:59, 24 December 2013 (UTC)
  • "Gladys was responsible for breaking the state's worst drought since 1932, which proved more beneficial than the minor storm damage there." - Personally, I'd replace ", which" with "and", because right now it might look like to some people that the drought in 1932 was more beneficial with the storm. :P
  • "with peak winds estimated at 85 mph (130 km/h).[1]" - What about the minimum barometric pressure?
    • What about it? I don't include it in every article I do, especially if it isn't anything spectacular. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 04:59, 24 December 2013 (UTC)
  • No impact in the Mid-Atlantic or New England?
    • I was disappointed Storm Data didn't have anything north of Virginia. Given how minimal the impact was in general, I'd imagine it was only some minor rainfall. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 04:59, 24 December 2013 (UTC)
  • "Precipitation from the storm spread as far west as Quebec and as far northeast as Newfoundland, causing flooding in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia." - Apparently this is a sentence fragment. Not sure how to fix it, though.
    • How is it a fragment? The subject is precipitation, the verb is spread, and the gerund phrase after the comma is perfectly valid. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 04:59, 24 December 2013 (UTC)
  • On reference #9, there is a capitalization error: "Beaver County Times. united Press International."
  • How can the publication date of reference #13 be October 1968?
    • Ehh, that was what the date was for the storm data, but I just changed the title then, if that's OK. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 04:59, 24 December 2013 (UTC)
