I tend to agree with you. Considering the energies at work in even a
minimal hurricane, I don't see how a bomb like the MOAB could have the
slightest effect. For that matter, I doubt even a nuclear weapon
would have much effect at all. I'm not familiar with the source you
quoted, but to be completely honest, I don't believe a word of it.
