    And your right ... 1944 does look pretty nasty

    1933 looks pretty gnarly too. Thats the year that OC was ripped in half and the inlet was naturally created. Pretty cool archive. There is only one major track that looks like it passed over OC, but this map must be a tad off, cause I dont see a direct hit that year. Crazy stuff tho. Nice.

    Haha ya seriously it can be Category 1 and we'd definitely see some overhead waves

    The waves from TS Danielle will also be determined by fetch and duration and which side of the storm is the strongest (e.g., SE vs W). If she is a slow moving Cat 1/2 between the 25 to 40 latitudes then we can expect some nice swells, but they will be longer period...

    Colin passed by us to the west of the Bermuda (68 W). Unless it's a pretty strong storm our swell window is typically 65 W. When I originally posted the models showed TD 6 track recurving around 55W. In order for a storm that far away to make swell for us it has to be pretty strong (ie lots of fetch). TD 6 will not get as close as Colin but the models are now showing it possible that it could reach 65 W.

    Regarding 1933

    Regarding 1933...the "Chesapeake-Potomac Hurricane" looks like it came pretty darn close, though not a direct hit per the map. The only thing that sucks about this whole interesting thread...it only exists because there aren't any waves!!!
