Hurricane Lorenzo 2019
What do you mean Lorenzo is no threat to land? Its headed for the Azores, which may not be well prepared as they are rarely hit.
Please see post and answers, and feel free to post in this topic to avoid multiple topics about the same thing:
And yes, Acores are on Lorenzo path I agree with you, and of course I consider those islands as "land". They are not "rarely" hit unfortunately. It happens quite often. However they were threaten by a Cat 4 hurricane this time and it was scary. Fortunately, It will most probably be a cat 1 hurricane when it reaches Acores, which is not particularely rare (but of course still dangerous). I hope impacts will be limited.
I generally don't like weasel words, but a few like "for the next week" or similar would help here.
Wow! looks like Lorenzo is going to dump a load of rain on the Low Countries. Just what your Hurricane tracker said 5 days ago. Couldn't you guys see the great white stripe covering the Azores on that day's Hurricane tracker? Couldn't you trust your own data? I know the "butterfly effect" can happen, but sometimes things can really be predicted substantially in advance.
According to the weather channel, Lorenzo is only the 15th hurricane to strike the Azores in the last 180 years. That is once every 12 years, which I would consider not often.
