      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.
