It's getting attention because:

A.) It's hitting an area that has little idea how to manage it.

B.) It's a super rare hurricane/nor'easter hybrid with a massive wind field. Basically, it's another Perfect Storm.

I know about the Loop Current in the Gulf, and I'm not an expert, but I think that a stalled storm in the Gulf would intensify to a strong Category 3 then meander in strength for as long as it sits. Cat 5 needs consistently perfect conditions to form and maintain, and most Cat 5's I've witnessed were moving at a consistent pace.
