Over at Curry.com Adam points out that there is quite a bit of linkage going to this site. I have to admit I was (and still am) quite sceptical about it. So I went off to query Google which only returned three results, all referring to the same article. I then went over to the website of Auckland University and searched again - this time I received zero results.
Now there very well may be "weather bombs" but surely if it were to be true in this case the results from the simple searches done would be more conclusive.
