Okay, we're faced with a hurricane making landfall on US territories tomorrow and the CONUS this weekend. What about making that storm radioactive makes that in anyway better? I mean seriously, there you are, stockpiling water and emergency rations, putting up shutters. In what possible way is your situation improved by radioactive rain and storm surge?

Once you glow in the dark, you don't have to worry about flashlight batteries running out.

Sterile drinking water can also be in short supply after such disasters. Nothing like a bit of gamma radiation to kill off the giardia and e. coli.

*The box you're currently using for shelter, after your home and neighborhood have been destroyed by a radioactive cat 4, that is

Instead of nuking hurricanes, one should nuke 'Gay Baby Whales for Jesus' instead.

I was too, sort of. Even if you could prevent the formation of a tornado, or break up one that has already formed by setting off a nuclear explosion, it would be a lot like putting several king cobras in your house to take care of your mouse problem.

More like setting fire to the house, I'd think; with accelerants that release sarin.
