A federal weather agency said that President Donald Trump was correct in saying Hurricane Dorian was at one point forecast to impact Alabama.

Some media outlets, reporters, and analysts have derided Trump for warning Alabama residents that they could see effects from the hurricane, but forecasts from before Dorian’s path shifted, including multiple forecasts and maps from the National Hurricane Center, showed that it was at one point poised to impact the state.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said in a new statement that a number of advisories backed up Trump’s claim.

“From Wednesday, Aug. 28, through Monday, Sept. 2, the information provided by NOAA and the National Hurricane Center to President Trump and the wider public demonstrated that tropical storm-force winds from Hurricane Dorian could impact Alabama. This is clearly demonstrated in Hurricane Advisories #15 through #41, which can be viewed at the following link,” the agency said in a statement on Sept. 6.

“The Birmingham National Weather Service’s Sunday morning tweet spoke in absolute terms that were inconsistent with probabilities from the best forecast products available at the time.”
