Also do you think most NWS offices don't use the EXP value of 200 mph because it is only 1 mph away from an EF5 and would cause a lot of controversy on social media with people screaming why don't you just rate it EF5? It is only 1 mph away from EF5.Absolutely. I have so many questions I don’t have answers to, like why call it the expected value if the lower bound is being used as the expected value instead? Why do surveyors give themselves permission to break the rules by doing things like this, or even going down below the lower bound?
Why is nobody being held accountable for what is essentially “rogue” surveying?
