I think that this is very useful information. It can help predict where storms will happen and what the intensity of the storm may be. Even though storms can be unpredictable having this knowledge will help to warn people about a coming storm.

"Fuel cells, solar thermal generating stations, photovoltaic fields, wind farms, diesel, natural-gas-fired turbines, microturbines and other renewable and non-renewable sources of energy can be aggregated in a microgrid..... a microgrid could automatically detach from the greater grid and continue to deliver power to sectors of customers in abnormal conditions. And this would enable utilities, too, to more strategically and efficiently deploy resources to damaged areas of the grid to make repairs and restore service."

I think it is intersting that we might have found the lost city of Atlantis after all this time. I wonder what people will think of it if we get to see it, will it be just like what they imagined?

I agree, this would be a great discovery to make. With all the superstitions about Atlantis, maybe everything they say about it really is true.
