Tropical Storm Isaias in early stages, i.e. “point of attack”.

Today, Isaias graduates to a category 1 hurricane, with sustained winds of 75MPH expected by 2PM Eastern. The outer bands are bringing to Florida 10ft waves and incredible wind-gusts. We don’t know for sure as of yet how devastating this storm will be but what we do know is that it is predicted to continue north and directly affect North Carolina – to what extent, is yet to be determined.

This begs the question: How do we determine which storms to attack and which storms to leave alone? This is a multi-step process but to explain it simply, we have a wealth of data from previous storm records that will be analyzed and compared to each new developing storm, in real time. This will allow us to consider projected paths, intensity, potential for loss of life, etc. By comparing archived data with developing storm systems, we can formulate a supremely accurate sense of which storms need to be eradicated. With this information, we create a proposal for the The National Tropical Storm & Hurricane Council which will include representatives of StormWeapon Defense Systems, FEMA, NASA, NHC, and NOAA.

In the case of Isaias, for example, our data would allow us to generate data projections on all of the pertinent information relating to estimated damages and casualties. We base this off a number of variables pertaining to property values, population density, wildlife, land elevation, etc. These calculations are considered for each likely route the storm may follow and these figures are presented to the Council for determination. If the storm is determined to be a considerable “net-negative” for all of the factors considered, we would initiate “Condition: Red”, which means “bye-bye” for Isaias.
