Be Wary of Longshore Encyclopedia of Hurricanes, etc., Book![edit]

It had a whole host of errors relating to the Atlantic Basin, even claiming that the name Larry had been used by the year 2000 (it had not), and transporting a tropical cyclone back in time two months in 1893. If you want to check out several of its reviews (including an old one by myself), click here. Thegreatdr 18:52, 15 August 2006 (UTC)
