"Our goal has been to get people to appreciate the magnitude of the
storm and try to prove to them that, based on everything we know, that
this is going to be a system that is outside of their experience,"
The Weather Channel sent a message via Twitter
calling it "an extraordinary storm, an extremely serious threat" and
urged followers to re-tweet it. The storm "will occupy a place in the
annals of weather history as one of the most extraordinary to have
affected the United States," the network tweeted."
Quickly, the Business Insider tweeted: "WHOA. The Weather Channel meteorologist just completely freaked out."
