The Typhoon- Day 103
« on: May 16, 2008, 10:47:06 AM »
According to the press a typhoon on washed up a boat and supplies on day 103. I believe we are close to day 103 now. So my theory is that "moving" the island or whatever they do in the Orchid causes a Typhoon to materialize to push the island to a new location. Wacky I know but this is lost.

Sounds feasible to me.  Every action has a reaction right.

I was thinking the freighter was the boat with supplies that washed ashore. It probably blew up and was blown around by a storm.

or the "storm" was used to cover up the blown-up freighter...


day 103 would be 2 January 2005 - right around where we are now like writers strike said :)

Thats not wacky, I said in a post last week that they use magnetism to levitate the island and move it. Remember this is LOST anything can happen!!

Almost anything... There has to be a science fiction explanation for it.

Perhaps whatever moves the island causes a typhoon. Am I gettinga typhoon and Tsunami mixed up??

I had them confused, too - my understanding: typhoon = tornado @ sea (tornado & Oz parallel?)

Okay, then I am. Tsunami is an earthquake undersea with a giant tidal wave. My bad, never mind what I said before.
