Predicting the 2017 hurricane season
“The history is no guide to the future. So many of the mistakes we see repeated over and over and over in hurricanes, you'll have someone saying it didn't flood this much in the last hurricane or it didn't flood that much in the hurricane ten years ago,” says Jamie Rhome of the National Hurricane Center. “Well flooding is unique, the flooding footprint in every hurricane is absolutely unique. So do not use history and experience to guide your future efforts.”
