Reich and Bill Moise published several reports in the 50s in Reich's journal,C.OR.E., on their having successfully diverted hurricanes out to sea that had been predicted to hit the East Coast. Blasband published reports in the Journal of Orgonomy of his having done likewise in the late 60s and early 70s. So there is little room for doubt that a cloudbuster can divert a hurricane if the operation is begun early enough.
The method is to draw from the direction of the land, weakening the orgone potential inland, so the potential out to sea becomes relatively stronger. This attracts the storm out to sea, away from the weaker potential inland.
Since a cloudbuster works by altering the orgonomic potential in one part of the sky to make that in some other part of the sky relatively stronger, the same result would reasonably be expected from any other method of building up a relatively strong potential in one location compared to another location.
So if someone on shore had a device operating that excited the local orgone field into a higher state of activity, the storm would be attracted towards that device. Then, if some other factor also was at work, such as the normal vector of these types of storm, which is what you suggested, the ultimate vector of the storm would be about what the pictures from space are showing now, a compromise vector that, together with the normal path of such storms, indicates an unusual build-up of charge in South Queensland, where Ash, who has a device that can excite the local orgone field, happens to live.
