Caption is incorrect though, typical news stations.
Are the police allowed to use that footage as evidence in criminal proceedings or does the media station have to fuzz out the perps' faces?
We can relabel the thread as 2017 Atlantic Hurricane season to be fair.Not sure if it's appropriate to speak more about storms now that Irma is long gone, but... there's another after Jose and Irma: Maria
Can feel for the Caribbean, they got yet another hurricane heading their way. And if this hits Florida or any of the East Coast... We still have another week to assess where this thing will go for US, but not so for Caribbean islands. The track does appear that it'll go far West than Irma, though
Meanwhile Jose looks like it's going to just roll around in the Atlantic and may affect Maria's path.
A few years come to mind. 1 in the mid 90s (I think 1996). The others in 2004 (Charley, Ivan, Jeanne) and 2005 (Katrina, Wilma).I don't remember having this many powerful storms this close together? Someone who's more into weather, do you know? Seems like googling is all over the place with it.
From what I know, 2017 has the record for the most consecutive hurricanes, with six storms in a row developing to at least Category 1 (Frankie, Gert, Harvey, Irma, Jose, Katia), the first to have two Atlantic storms making US landfall at Category 4 or above, the first to have four Category 4 Atlantic hurricanes since 2010 and one of only six years on record to have two Category 5 Atlantic hurricanes. And with Irma, it also set the record for the largest Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) in one day - and the ACE rating is well above average, despite setting a record for lowest ACE of the first five storms of the seasonI don't remember having this many powerful storms this close together?

Indeed, I still remember watching that season unfold in awe. It was quite a show and set a number of records: most storms formed (by a wide margin, 28 vs 21 for the next highest ), most powerful storm in the Atlantic basin (Wilma, 882 mbar), most major hurricanes (tied at 7), costliest season on record, most storms formed before the end of July, most storms formed during July, longest lasting December hurricane, most category 5 hurricanes (4), etc.2005 was the horror show. Largest ACE of any season, four Category 5 storms (Emily, Katrina, Rita, Wilma), five successive hurricanes (Maria, Nate, Ophelia, Phillipe, Rita), 28 named storms - they ran out of names and went with Greek letters...
Jose's hitting the Cape, although it doesn't seem serious. The radio this morning was reporting that it was going over Nantucket and part of the cape. We're getting rain as far north as Boston.I hope everyone here in Puerto Rico and actually anyone who is in the storm's path to please stay safe and find shelter. Meanwhile, the apparently immortal Jose is continuing to just spin around in almost no forward movement and may loop over its own path and head back towards the Mid-Atlantic states, where it will again loop back and head out to sea again (most likely).
It's supposed to meander where it is and according to the forecast, will remain roughly where it is until Sunday. That COULD cause Maria to make landfall on the Outer Banks.Jose's hitting the Cape, although it doesn't seem serious.
