GA Review[edit]

Article (edit | visual edit | history) · Article talk (edit | history) · Watch
Overall, the article looks pretty good. I'll go through it in detail to give my findings, which may take a day or so.

Lead section:

  • looks good; I did some minor copyediting

Meteorological history:

  • "the upper level environment favored development" - I found this confusing, and I'm still not quite sure what it means.
  • "a partially exposed low" - this seems to be jargon with no explanation; a wikilink to Low-pressure area would help
  • "designating it at 20W" - I have no idea what this means.
  • It was meant to be "designating it as 20W" which is the JTWC numbering for the storm. Cyclonebiskit 15:24, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
  • "PAGASA issued their final advisory on Tropical Storm 'Juaning'" - is the name supposed to be italicized? I'm not sure what the punctuation is for.
  • "around this time" - "this" doesn't seem to fit, possibly because of the verb tense; would "that" work?

Preparations and impact:

  • "three others were injured" - this should probably be "three people", as "others" refers specifically to women as it is currently written.
  • "One ship also sank during the storm." - this left me wondering what kind of ship. Is the information available (in order to avoid going off on a tangent, a brief mention is all that's necessary).
  • "Two other passengers had their cervical vertebra." - this seems like an incomplete thought.
  • The second paragraph of this section seems a little choppy, as it is made up of several short sentences. Combining sentences in a place or two might help with the flow of the prose.

I will place this nomination on hold to allow for these concerns to be addressed and/or discussed. If you have any comments or questions, you can leave them here, as this page is on my watchlist. Best wishes, GaryColemanFan (talk) 06:36, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

I've made the suggested changes to the article. Cyclonebiskit 15:24, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
"peaked at 95 mm/h (3.7 in/h) on Miyaketsubota which[13]" - should this reference be after Miyaketsubota instead of which? There doesn't seem to be a reference for the second half of the sentence (about the seven mudslides). Is one available? Aside from that, everything is looking good.

Move the reference before which and added the Japan Summary reference for the seven landslides. Cyclonebiskit 01:06, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
Looks good. I'm promoting the article. GaryColemanFan (talk) 04:21, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
