27. What is interesting is that back in '89

when on vacation in Acapulco, I got the pleasure of what was Cat 1 Cosme that literally passed over Acapulco Bay and surrounding area. It knocked the power out at the hotel and there was flooding (particularly on the other side of the mountain ridge) but the eye passed over us overnight which was wild to experience at night as it was stormy and then quiet with the stars out and then stormy again.



Cosme had formed in the Pacific, crossed Mexico, and then the remnants emerged into the GOM where they regenerated and the storm was renamed Allison (tropical storm). Allison made landfall in TX and the remnants eventually made their way to Philly after we returned home, so I experienced it TWICE!



From that point on, NHC made a change where they would no longer "rename" storms that cross between the oceans if it can be shown that they came back to life from remnants.

I'm watching Lee closely BumRushDaShow Sep 2023 #7
Thank you. So far it's only moving at 14 mph, and if it doesn't swing northward, should ancianita Sep 2023 #8
14 mph is pretty "rapid" for a storm that size BumRushDaShow Sep 2023 #10
I'll take your word for it; Idalia moved from 13 mph to 35 mph, and I've heard higher mph's ancianita Sep 2023 #21

Cool! I tracked them in 8th grade, but when NOAA showed up, I felt in better hands. Glad you ancianita Sep 2023 #24
One of my fave trackers is Levi Cowan BumRushDaShow Sep 2023 #25
I'm sure he's right. Because El Nino has been a factor in turning Atlantic hurricanes north. ancianita Sep 2023 #26

Welp, laying blame doesn't help folks prepare. It just distracts. There's a lot wrong with ancianita Sep 2023 #9
I actually didn't blame anyone Farmer-Rick Sep 2023 #12
I have to disagree... Think. Again. Sep 2023 #13
Sure it's important. But not to those undergoing the actual loss, harm and damage caused by ancianita Sep 2023 #16
