(Storm Tracker)

I am taking the day off. My office is in St Pete and I work remote from Orlando. My son and I are going to start boarding up and finish tomorrow. Also going to clean out the garage to make room for the patio furniture. The basketball hoop is going to be taken apart and is coming down.

Does anyone have a decent estimate of the possible range of winds and gusts in Northwest Orlando?

I just looked up the strongest wind gusts reported in Charley - 106 mph in Orlando. Compare Charley with Irma at landfall then add or subtract forward motion depending on which side of the eye wall you experience. If I had to take a guess, which I am doing, I would say gusts around 125 sustained around 100. Unfortunately I could be way off. I don't think we have a benchmark for this storm at least as long as I have lived in Florida - 45 years
