Fake news? Nope. Somewhat sensationalized (exploited) for advertising purposes? Probably. As weather events go, it was an impressive case. People were impacted, big time. I don't know if anyone died but I wouldn't be surprised. People dying is hardly fake news.

Correct and this type activity by news outlets is fair but not unheard of.

Silly me. I really thought this thread was about the weather and how frequently weather conditions are "hyped" and storms just pass us by.

But I have reread this thread three times and I read and feel antagonism that is not warranted.

And do not understand most of the posts to be frank.

There are "bomb cyclones" happening across the U.S. which means tornadoes produced by a huge change in air pressure over a very short time. The winds produced are strong enough to tear off roofs and topple 18 wheelers.

You can call it Ray or you can call it Fay.

OR you can read much more into it.

if I misread..sorry, but....

Closing line before signature...


I do believe the weather is a simple example of all the rest of the news and how reported.

TITLE OF THREAD....ENDING..

"Another sign of media theatrics/emphasis"

So if I misread the intent, this is why. Of course I am stupid and non sophisticated and took the words literally.

I do not believe it is any sign of anything, and I also responded to his memories, when the information and means did not exist.

His summary is what I find a bit offensive. He actually was quite dismissive of the term "bomb" and I saw no mention of The Villages storms or them passing us by. That would actually be a discussion of weather

This is wrong. While some deep low pressure centers do spawn tornadoes, it is not the norm and it would be incorrect to assume that tornadoes are typical. Regardless, the post is pretty much pointless. If someone wants to start a post about weather, please do so. I will be happy to separate the wheat from the chaff.

I'm not sure of the guy's name on Wesh 2 News but before Irma, this guy had us more upset by his reporting theatrics than the actual storm did. We were very new and between him acting up and the Weather Radio, we were going nuts. I put my faith in Tuccillo on TOTV because it was all facts and no add on info to upset us.

We have come to really like the guy Tony Mainolfi but will never forget his BombShell reporting. We just were not accustomed to his style.

Billy, I like your post and understand what you were saying, no problem you are correct. A big show for NOTHING.

I had no idea you were a meteorologist. I had not heard the term "bomb cyclone" until recently.

This explains why...….

Advances in predicting weather events has increased in accuracy tremendously... in the last 20 years or so.


Anything used to make people take dangerous weather more seriously, or to make them stay at home during the peak...is fine in my book.

Not sensationalized if you live along the Midwest waterways. IMO the flood in Midwest will probably go down as the worst since record keeping.
