  1. That Dvorak Intensity scale should be made open ended so it can measure hurricanes of whatever size.

    Also the Category system should be open ended, allowing for Cat 6, Cat 7, etc.; if hurricanes get strong enough to need those numbered intervals. Leaving Cat 5 open ended will limit its usefulness as a measurement-expressing tool as hurricanes get stronger at the high end.

    @PastorFrisbie I am so worried for all of the people and animals in the line of this historic event. #PrayerForMexico
