Response coming soon regarding reversion in Great Storm of 1987[edit]

Greetings Pools. I am ChrisJBenson (talk). You reverted my recent edit to the article about the Great Storm of 1987, and made several very helpful and appreciated comments along the way. But a response from me is brewing on the horizon. I lost my home computer (inaccessible hard disk) during creation of a carefully crafted and researched series of responses to your series of points. This served as a temporary respite for me as well as you (my own health isn't much better than my computer's), but over this weekend (a three day weekend in my transplanted home in the States), I will try to rebuild and complete that response and convey it to you on a borrowed laptop.

Of course I have been wrong, and it has happened before in Mathematics seemingly more after three degrees in it from Manchester. If aspects of my carefully worded edit are still wrong after I submit specific supporting mathematical, climatological, and mass media evidence, I will be happy upon learning why. I had an irrefutably sound basis for entering into an immediate "edit without discussion" in the first place though, as the first sentence of the section currently violates two Wikipedia policies. The response will be rather lengthier than this, so I am not sure if I should clutter up your page here with it, place it on my talk page, or the article's talk page. Some of it is certainly suited to being kept on the article's talk page. I wanted not to warn you, but to ask you "to hold those thoughts" on your reversion for a few days, but not dismiss them entirely.

I almost prefer to be wrong and learn why. Almost. With many thanks for Wikipedia's most thoughtfully documented edit reversion, from the revertee ChrisJBenson (talk) 21:59, 8 November 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Cyclone Anna[edit]

Perhaps helpful:

It is sad that my camera is out of action now so I will be unable to provide pictures of Quilty, Spanish Point, Lahinch, Liscannor or Doolin. Some sights were frightening! The Banner talk 19:20, 7 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]

And again: I hope you can use this! The Banner talk 21:07, 11 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for your efforts on this article, I really appreciate this. I don't regard it a secret that I live in Milltown Malbay, close to the badly hit Lahinch en Quilty.
By the way: who were those two American edit warriors? The Banner talk 17:16, 23 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]

File:AntjeBarbara.png[edit]

I noticed you removed this image and marked it for speedy deletion, so... One of the pages linked there, [1], says at the top, "Aktualni data z polarnich druzic NOAA" which seems to translate to "Actual data from NOAA polar satellites", in which case the file would be in the public domain as a work of the federal government of the United States. Dustin (talk) 19:56, 29 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

@Dustin V. S.: My reading of it was that the data is from NOAA, however the processing of the free data into imagery by the Czech meteorological organisation gives them the ownership of copyright, such as applied at other sites e.g. http://www.woksat.info/wwp.html . I want to try and use the images from EUMetView, but I'm working out how their data reuse policy relates to wikipedia non-free/commons policy, as I see their imagery is used elsewhere for example [2].Lacunae (talk) 21:20, 29 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

That's a shame. I'd have hoped that since NOAA released it for free, derivatives would also remain free / non-copyrighted. Anyway, on the image you just linked, it seems that such images should be available per this link: "EUMETSAT grants all users the right to use, download and copy information, images, documents and materials from the website on the condition that each information, image, document and material taken from the website carries the EUMETSAT copyright credit "copyright {year} EUMETSAT" (where {year} is the current year)."

1973 storm[edit]

If you were Dutch you would know. My sources are in Dutch, including a TV news item. Read Radio Veronica and read about the storm. The 1972 one and the 1973 one did really cause widespread damages. On both occasions it was like a rooftile storm. ~
But why not asking me instead of just reverting? There is a real existing person behind this IP number ... 83.85.143.141 ([[User talk:|talk]]) 17:09, 7 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

@83.85.143.141: 1. I reverted an edit you made to a listing of a storm in October 1986 2. wikipedia policy is that non-sourced material can be removed 3. The value is more extreme (928 mb) than even the national Dutch record and so is incorrect (954 hPa see List of atmospheric pressure records in Europe) 4. If you wish greater acknowledgement of the person behind your IP, I suggest you get a username. 5. Dutch sources are perfectly acceptable.Lacunae (talk) 17:33, 7 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for letting me know which source you want. We Dutch mostly went through the eye of the storm which affected conditions from the Portuguese coast to the North Cape. Meteorological charts and maps then were very impressive. Never did I see such a vast depression. But the wind scale effort disappointed. Being a coastal child I expected more. 83.85.143.141 (talk) 21:37, 7 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Creating an identity is creating an imaginery, a false claim of the truth. Autobiografic stuff isn't trustworthy. And like an IP address it can be run by multiple persons. 83.85.143.141 (talk) 21:42, 7 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Chew Stoke flood of 1968[edit]

I noticed the article Chew Stoke flood of 1968 when you added some links, however the flooded affected more than one village and most of the Chew Valley so how about Chew Valley flood of 1968 as a title?— Rod talk 20:07, 18 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

It also includes the Pforzheim Tornado, Germany which is miles away and shouldn't be included.— Rod talk 20:09, 18 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

@Rodw: I don't mind widening out the article title to Chew Valley flood of 1968 or something inclusive of the rain in the wider area and flooding in Bristol. I was mostly aiming to disentangle the article Great Flood of 1968 which had this flood in July and another in the Southeast UK in September mixed in. The Pforzheim tornado is meteorologically related, and I'd prefer to keep this in as otherwise it doesn't really have a home on the English Wikipedia, and is notable, and possibly can in future be worked on further into its own article.Lacunae (talk) 20:20, 18 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Greece + Numa[edit]

I was asked last night about Greece naming Numa and I wondered what you knew about it and does it mean that Greece thinks Numa was a Tropical Storm? Jason Rees (talk) 23:04, 28 November 2017 (UTC)[reply]

@Jason Rees: I think this article says the National Observatory of Athens don't consider Numa to be Tropical.http://greece.greekreporter.com/2017/11/22/no-link-between-hurricane-numa-and-deadly-floods-in-greece-say-meteorologists/
