So let me see if I understand what has happened here...
The NWS issues a forecast for Hurricane Dorian. The forecast does not show the "cone of uncertainty" affecting Alabama.
Pres Trump (who seems to have an affinity for Alabama, but that's a different thread) allegedly uses his trademark sharpie to extend the cone of uncertainty into Alabama, showing that the eye of Dorian could hit Alabama.
The good citizens of Alabama, heeding Pres Trump's comments, flood their local officals, who then flood the local NWS offices, asking what is going on.
The Alabama NWS office issues a statement saying that the forecast does not have the cone on uncertainty hitting Alabama.
Pres Trump doubles down, repeating his false information.
[long story short]
Now it seems that Pres Trump, with his usual inability to tolerate any gainsaying, is looking to fire someone, anyone, in NOAA (the parent of NWS) because NWS people in Alabama had the audacity to reassure the good people of Alabama that they were not in a possible projected path for the eye of the fierce hurricane Dorian.
Do I have that correct?
1- cone of uncertainty - the NWS term of the possible paths of the eye of the hurricane.
