we did the same thing solely for that reason.

being in a life and death situation (or even close to one) with little kids is too horrifying to contemplate.

Yeah they definitely change things. Last year when we left our youngest was only 6 months old. At least this time Mickey entertains him pretty well.

Might as well add a cat 6 to the hurricane strength/size nomenclature..and maybe 7-8 by mid-century. Including animal names for the 7s, and Norse gawds for the 8s.

I remember seeing a satellite image of the '78 super winter storm that hit the Midwest, with the lowest barometric pressure ever recorded. We had rain at first, the drops were huge, and the storm looked just like a hurricane, even with an "eye".

IIRC, there was a Pacific cyclone last year or the year before, that packed wind speeds of ~200 mph, can''t recall if they were "sustained" though.

I have read that tropical depressions which form off the west coast of Saharan Africa, are those who move west and eventually become tropical storms, which then develop into hurricanes.Doesn't explain where cyclones are birthed, including those that hit Australia/NZ.
