  • "The tropical storm, steadily intensifying to a hurricane, moved rapidly west-northwestward. " huh??? This just seems so weird. change it to "The tropical storm moved rapidly west-northwestward while steadily intensifying into a hurricane". YE Pacific Hurricane 03:17, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
    • I was just trying to change up the writing style, but OK. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:27, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
  • "Category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale." do what we normally do and spell out SSHWS
    • We don't always though. It's redundant saying C4 hurricane on the SSHWS. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:27, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
  • " this suggest a landfall intensity of 125 mph (205 km/h)" so the time the eye passed over. YE Pacific Hurricane
    • No, the low pressure suggested those winds. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:27, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
  • "After the storm, a boat sailed from Nassau to deliver food and building materials to Eleuthera.[6]" isn't this aftermath :P YE Pacific Hurricane 03:17, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
    • Ah, forgot to remove it there, heh. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:27, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
  • "Winds reached 110 mph (180 km/h) at Governor's Harbour.[6] The storm was farther away from Nassau, where winds reached 35 mph (56 km/h).[2]" why are these mentioned if there not the highest total or anywhere close to that? YE Pacific Hurricane 03:17, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
    • Nassau is the capital, and thus one of the more important cities. As for Governor's Harbour, it was another high wind reading, so I opted to include it. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:27, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
  • "Winds were not as strong farther from the center" No s**t. Why is this in the article? In almost every real storm (sans those ATL early season messes), winds are not as stronger the farther from the center you go :P YE Pacific Hurricane
    • Well, it leads the wind reports outside of the direct path :P A storm striking Florida would affect the whole state, so this sentence shows how it did. It just shows a variety. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:27, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
  • "40 to 45 mph (64 to 72 km/h) winds were observed in Miami to the south, Titusville to the north, and Tampa on the west coast.[2] " see coment on this like 2 comments above, same issue applies? YE Pacific Hurricane 03:17, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
  • " or 4 million boxes, were destroyed.[3]" hold it up. "boxes". What does this half to do with anything the rest of the sentence talks about? Did they farm in boxes? YE Pacific Hurricane 03:17, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
    • Fruit are held in boxes :P It'd be the same if a storm destroyed X barrels of oil, or something. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:27, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
  • "In the Bahamas after the storm, a boat sailed from Nassau to deliver food and building materials to Eleuthera.[6]" uhh, didn't you just mention this in the preps/impact. YE Pacific Hurricane 03:17, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
