    Funny how this is the lead story, and it isn't even going to come CLOSE to the United States. That Herman Cain story is way more important and is now bumped to a tiny icon. What gives, WITN?

    I love Phillips Williams too. Does anyone know why he left that OTHER station?

    I have not seen Phillip Williams on WITN since the weekend he covered for Matt. I usually see all the news casts every day. Am I missing something here? I like Phillip Williams as well.

    I love WITN period. Glad to see Phillip. Thought I was dreaming when I turned on my TV a few weekends ago and heard his voice. Had to raise my head. Bob was good too, 7 always seems to have the right people in place at any given time. To the subject, Ophelia did she hit the outer banks in 05. Haven't done web search yet but name is familiar. Like Dennis and Irene to name what I know at this moment to be sure 2 cannot strike again.

    Didn't realize Bob was gone until a few days ago. I liked Bob and WITN continues to have the best weather team in the market. To make it better, add Phillip Williams to replace Bob. This is a no brainer.

    I,too, am enjoying seeing Phillip on the air waves again. WITN has great weathermen and he makes it even better.

    Note*** This is in NO way WITN's doing... but, does anyone else think it's a bit asinine to reuse storm names, year after year, until such a time that a storm causes significant enough damage as to have its name retired? I mean, are we REALLY in danger of running out of names?

      Yes, actually, so they added male names, then spanish names. If 20 storms a year, how long you think we can go before needing a new set of names? The only other way to do it would be year/number...2011- 9 = Irene
