Originally, they predicted Jose was going to swing out to sea and miss almost everyone. Latest predictions I've seen show it swinging a little further West than expected and possibly contacting the mid-Atlantic states. Smile

Who thinks up these hurricane names?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I'm assuming you mean people, and no, if Jose dwindles to a tropical storm before teaching land, I'm certain the news people will warn people not to take even a tropical storm lightly, but I doubt you'll see the; stock up on provisions, get to high ground, go to a shelter, response you got from Harvey and Irene.

I hardly think warning people of the risks involved constitutes "scaring." Or if it does, it's NECESSARY scaring in the face of two monster storms! I'm just glad Jose isn't looking to make it a hat trick!

Or do you mean the hurricane will teach the land?

And there is no such thing as NECESSARY scaring.

Stupid auto-correct!

Are you suggesting the news media DOWNPLAY the potential effects of storms?

How do you overhype a category 5 storm?

Actually a story designating Irma as a category 6 was shared over 2 million times.

Indeed that is one way to over hype it.

I did not see any reliable media call Irma a 6. 5 was the most I saw and downgraded to a 4 as soon as it hit land.

What stupid people on social media choose to share is not the fault of the news.

The damage to Texas from Harvey is in the billions.
The damage to Florida from Irma is in the billions.
(Although less than anticipated since the brunt of the storm missed both Miami and Tampa.)
There is no way those storms were over hyped.

Ed there was a run on water in Miami a full week probably 10 days prior to it NOT hitting Miami. The storm was WAY over hyped. The FEMA director said nobody in Florida had lived through a storm that strong, yet Andrew and Charlie both hit Florida in our lifetimes. Over hype sorry. Just because you didn't see it doesn't mean it never happened.

I lived in Florida through the season they had 5 storms hit. Right in Key Largo and trust me it is WAY over hyped.

The NWS is in a unique position. With hype and a hit they are heroes. With hype and a miss they are fools. With no hype and a hit they are dangerously incompetent. With no hype and a miss they are ignored. With Irma, given the magnitude of the storm and the uncertain track until the last moments I believe they made the right call. Sadly, I guess people want devastation once they are told to expect it and if they don't get it someones not doing their job.

Do you know how much it costs a tourist community when they are evacuated for no reason? The economic impact is absolutely horrible. Not as bad as being hit, but certainly preventable, unlike bring hit.

How can you say there was no reason. They had every reason to issue the warnings. Look at the islands in the Caribbean, look at the size of the storm in strength, breadth and depth. There were no signs in advance that it would weaken or change course. Just a "possibility". To ignore the warnings were a gamble. Like a bet, some folks made out and others didn't. I don't gamble when the threat of death is a possible outcome.

Although I was in New Hampshire during the storm it cost me a significant amount of time and money to evacuate my loved ones, and that's not including canceling my eagerly anticipated trip to the west coast, in order to assist them, for a relaxing vacation. When all was said and done they had minor damage and inconvenience but the peace of mind on all of our parts was well worth it.

By the way, it was kind of ironic in that I had them go to Orlando and at the last minute it was headed there. Fortunately it weakened and passed in between Tampa and Orlando.

P.S. For the pet lovers, lodging cost $270.00 per dog. More than the per person rate.

A week, ten days before landfall, the best projected path was Miami. There could be no way of knowing the storm would swerve or weaken so quickly. Warnings were given based on the information available. If people choose to over react OR ignore that information, that doesn't make the information incorrect.

How many of the storms you lived through were four or fives?

2. Chaley in Florida and Emily in Tulum.

So what? WAY over hyped.

I get that forecasting is a double edge blade. Error on the side of caution. But I am telling you that when tourist areas are evacuated for no reason, which happened 4 times in one year to the Keys, it has a very large economic impact and some businesses close for good. Worse yet is there is no relief without damages. FEMA issues no disaster relief money to areas evacuated for no reason. The victims have no place to turn.

You really are missing my point because effectively you are saying "well yes they went out of business and have no relief and lost almost as much as if the storm hit them because of the actions of FEMA but better safe than sorry".
