Chris Franklin, a NOLA met, for one example. If I had a nickel every time he mentioned how intensity forecasts had been lowered in this 4pm newscast, I could fill up my car's gas tank (not really but he over-emphasized a 5-10 mph decrease in winds which was NEVER the main threat). But, he didn't even mention the hurricane warnings that were issued for the coastal parishes of Louisiana until his 4:30 newscast. Are you kidding me?Who exactly is brushing off these storms?
Has he taken a look at the QPFs? This is not something to be downplaying. Someone is going to be raked.
