The need to name significant, and sometimes insignificant, weather events has reached a new peak. Partially brought on by The Weather Channel's decision to unilaterally name weather events it considers important, the idea of naming storms has stirred great interest -- and now controversy. Many have nicknamed Hurricane Sandy "Frankenstorm." CNN has gone on record as denouncing the use of a name that it feels trivializes a potentially destructive storm.
The Capital Weather Gang reports that the "Frankenstorm" nickname stemmed from use in a National Weather Service-issued statement. And so the plot thickens.
Here are some twitter responses on the subject. Do you agree? Disagree?
I'm indifferent on the use of Frankenstorm or not. The storm had a name - Sandy - for about 99% of its pre-landfall life.ReplyDelete
Personally, I think it is a clever name. Due to the very unusual nature of the storm, with multiple components, Frankenstorm seems aprapos.
I'm a little disappointed that the National Hurricane Center did not have Tropical Storm and even Hurricane Warnings north of the NC/VA border. To me that is the real controversy.
Amazing how far out the models predicted this. As far as I can tell, it was predicated to hit southern NJ about 5 or 6 days ago. That is phenomenal.
Lot of records falling with this epic storm, whatever you want to call it.

And yes, I get that it was post-tropical at landfall, but still, it had enough or more strength than most storms that head up the East Coast.Delete
