This is a Terrible Headline

This headline is both sensational and misleading:
The story is here. The "storm of the season" quote does not appear in the article nor is there any meteorologist on the record forecasting a major hurricane, let alone one that will "ruin Labor Day."

While such an occurrence is not impossible, I would rate the odds of a "major" hurricane striking the United States this weekend at about one in 50. The chance is so small that at this point that I am not putting in my advice to "keep an eye on the official advisories."

The bigger point is that this is just reprehensible journalism.
