I too saw what you did, but FPL lost 10,000 poles (twice the loss in Andrew) most of which were rated at 119mph...go figure...

Maybe the poles were rated that high, but the ground wasn't (sandy, or saturated). It will likely be analyzed, and the failure in the lower windspeeds will be explained in engineering terms, some months down the road, just like the situation with the canal wall failures in NOLA.

Floater 1 has now been moved to the NW Carib for the remnants of TD27.
