Its at B-Class, more anything is needed. Storm05 12:48, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

"On the 27th, a low pressure area while the system was located a few hundred miles to the east of the Yucatán Peninsula."

This is not a complete sentence.

Thanks for the catch. I got it. Hurricanehink (talk) 18:12, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

GA review[edit]

What other two tropical storms did Larry hit with? That's really the only open question at the moment. Thanks! —Rob (talk) 16:35, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

Nora and Olaf. I added that to the intro. Hurricanehink (talk) 18:51, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
Olaf in particular made the rainfall files/graphic fairly challenging to create for Larry. The associated images will be created either tomorrow or Monday. The spreadsheet is already created, and a few places reported over 20" of rain. I'm guessing it would be reasonable to replace the satellite derived rainfall with the real thing when it comes out, or should we have both? Thegreatdr 21:08, 21 September 2006 (UTC)
Great news! I guess we should replace the satellite derived rainfall; it's only estimated based on satellite after all. Hurricanehink (talk) 22:00, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

Passed GA nomination[edit]

Congratulations to the editors of this article for their in achieving GA status Gnangarra 11:27, 23 June 2006 (UTC)


I think this can easily be an FA soon, despite its length. Is there anything more that can be done? íslenskur fellibylur #12 (samtal) 23:15, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Find more impact, I guess. Hurricanehink (talk) 00:01, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
I don't think that's gonna happen with a tropical storm that only caused 50 million USD in damage and 5 fatalities. But I think it can still be made an FA without more impact. íslenskur fellibylur #12 (samtal) 00:10, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
Just writing this down to remember to do it later; metrification and some inflation. I'll do it later, gotta finish homework and put my stuff in my new trapper keeper. íslenskur fellibylur #12 (samtal) 00:16, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Just posting these in case anyone wants to add them.

  • Mexico Meteorology Service Larry Report- damage to highways, and caused disruption to power and television services.
  • Disaster Declaration for 52 cities, overflown rivers, 9,000 houses damaged, 75,000 total people affected by the storm, landslides, flooded crops, failure in the water systems, some more probably. The site is in spanish, so I might have missed/mis-interpreted something.

GA Sweeps Review: Pass[edit]

As part of the WikiProject Good Articles, we're doing sweeps to go over all of the current GAs and see if they still meet the GA criteria. I'm specifically going over all of the "Meteorology and atmospheric sciences" articles. I believe the article currently meets the criteria and should remain listed as a Good article. I have made several minor corrections throughout the article. Altogether the article is well-written and is still in great shape after its passing in 2006. Continue to improve the article making sure all new information is properly sourced and neutral. It would also be beneficial to go through the article and update all of the access dates of the inline citations and fix any dead links. If you have any questions, let me know on my talk page and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. I have updated the article history to reflect this review. Happy editing! --Nehrams2020 (talk) 01:15, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Tropical Storm Larry (2003)Tropical Storm Larry – Only Atlantic storm named Larry. Jdcomix (talk) 14:17, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

  • Support per nomination. —Roman Spinner (talk)(contribs) 21:38, 5 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose since it would require a move of the disambiguation page, and the nomination failed to take the name of that into consideration. -- Tavix (talk) 15:58, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
  • @Tavix: We wouldn't need to move the disambiguation page, since there was only one other storm named Larry. If we moved this article, we could put a hatnote at the top, pointing to Cyclone Larry. I support moving the article and doing exactly this. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 18:26, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
@Hurricanehink: just to clarify, you want Tropical Storm Larry (2003) moved over the disambiguation page, effectively deleting it? If so, I'll withdraw my oppose. -- Tavix (talk) 18:57, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
Correct. There's no need for a dab page with only two articles. Hurricanehink mobile (talk) 23:44, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
Great. As my opposition was purely procedural, I'll go ahead with the move. -- Tavix (talk) 22:19, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.
