Meteorologists have been using models for predicting the paths and behaviour of tropical cyclones, and cyclone modelling has evolved into a complex science. But that models could use cyclones as well, was unheard of.

Not in good taste, but then a supermodel can take liberties with a superstorm, perhaps!
