    It does? Could you highlight the section that claims surge could be 15-20'?

    No way, that's the only good thing to come out of a hurricane.

    No problem.........
    Irene's large size, slow movement, and arrival at the highest tide of the month could easily bring a surge one Category higher than the storm's winds might suggest, resulting in a Category 2 type inundation along the coast, near 10 - 15 feet.
    If he is correct, his upper limit would equal the lower limit I posted.

    as i said, no weaseling away from the positions taken
    positions staked out by those who should be aware of the variables of any storm

    That's because you're Trolling. Posting what you want- NOT what was posted.
    Again with edit you missed

    no weaseling out of those positions now

    The OP/Title "Looking Like Major Disaster" (NOT "WILL be Major Disaster"), which was absolutely accurate when posted and will Remain so no matter the outcome.
    "Will", is the aptly named Justabubba, Perversion/Misstating of what WAS said.

    That's right, and nowhere does he suggest that it could rise above the lower limit you posted.

    If the surge reaches 15', then I will be correct.

    No, you still would not be correct in suggesting that it could rise as high as 20'. But in any case, I doubt it will get anywhere near 15'.
