    a better critique of the hurricane names study: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/06/03/1303963/-A-Novel-Neat-Original-but-Ultimately-Flawed-Study

    just to expand on one example from the dkos diary…

    ivan in 2004 was supposed to hit new Orleans, where hundreds of thousands, maybe a million, cars were stranded on the roads while trying to evacuate from new Orleans. at the last minute, ivan took an unexpected turn to the north and hit the florida-alabama border, a much less populous area and one that’s probably 30 feet higher in elevation than new Orleans. it’s just luck of the draw that the hurricane that DID hit (near) new Orleans the following year was named Katrina.
