If there’s one thing that’s been reinforced as people in Florida and the Carolinas prepare for what they’re being told will be at least a brush with Hurricane Dorian, it is that there’s still a lot we don’t know about Hurricanes and what exactly they will do.
I’ll admit to tuning in to my share of Weather Channel coverage of the storm as it strengthened, then weakened over the Bahamas and it was pretty clear that despite all of the satellite technology we have, we’re still not all that good at determining Dorian’s future course.
It was also difficult to determine whether the folks from the network were just trying to hype up interest which translates in to ratings and revenue for the network.
But storms like Dorian are very good for the Weather Channel.
That’s the way I see it.
