I have a question. Ealier today I saw a guy Live on MSNBC in Punta Gorda and he was talking about the storm damage. He thinks that Charley may not have been a Cat 4 at landfall. He said in the Upper 2, Cat 3 range. Judging from the video I have seen, this was definetly a Cat 4. I think some people dont realize how small this hurricane was at landfall and that onlya very small area really expirenced the strongest winds. It seems though that a large area has been devastated. I just dont think a Cat 3 could cause all the damage the area has seen. I personally believe somewhere near the eyewall could have seen gust in the 155 to 175 mph range IMHO. Does anyone else have comments?
