Re: Hurricane Local Statement for IKE

Whoops...off to new thread! Mike posted a new news thread while I was writing this.


Original post, which I moved there:

In confirmation with SFMR readings, buoy 42361 (a Shell Oil rig) is measuring 99kt winds 50 miles NNE from the last center fix of Ike. Anemometer is at 122m above the surface, so this isn't really true surface winds.
