So Hurricane Dean is described as the third most powerful storm to hit the Atlantic basin since they started keeping track of such things. Of course, this means the morning news is populated by on-the-scene reporters standing out in the midst of the storm offering their reports. This would at least be understandable if these stories were actually illuminating, but all you get is some poor rain-soaked correspondent trying to shout over the wind as a camera lens covered in water drops tries to survey the limited visibility behind them. If it were up to me, they could just have someone point out trends on a weather map from the safety of the studio, but I guess someone thinks the current method is a good thing, as it is so widespread. Oh well, if it helps, I can promise the news networks of the world that if they stop this I will never switch to a different station to find a newscast that features "better" coverage of a hurricane because they have on-location reporting.
