Hello Tropical Analyst! I will be reviewing TS Earl.

Lead[edit]

  • "mid-August" could use an en dash.
    • I'm pretty sure it is supposed to be a standard hyphen.
  • "thirty-four roofs" → 34 roofs

Meteorological history[edit]

Overall, the MH has a lot of jargon that can and should be linked, but I'll also list a few specific cases below. As a rule of thumb 3% of words in an article should be linked.

  • "...much-improved banding features and fair upper-level outflow..." Please link some meteorological terms to an appropriate article.
  • "...embedded and under the influence of a deep easterly flow around the southern periphery of a subtropical ridge of high pressure to the cyclone's north..." You should link a few of these jargon words.
  • " At this time, the cyclone was situated about 325 mi (525 km/h) east of Barbados." Same deal here, link Barbados.
  • "Within an environment characterized by low wind shear, high atmospheric humidity, and warm sea surface temperatures, Earl intensified, reaching a peak intensity of 50 mph (85 km/h) by 0600 UTC on August 15. Initial forecasts from the National Hurricane Center..." Link the meteorological terms, and the NHC.
  • What's a hunter hunter aircraft?

Preparations and impact[edit]

  • Link minor island countries and warnings/watches throughout this section. Also link organizations.
  • "On the main island, the roofs were blown off..." No need to have 'the'
  • You repeat the fact that several hundreds of people evacuated into schools in the second paragraph. Remove the one in the second paragraph, because its already in the first - "Several hundred people evacuated to shelters set up at local schools."
