In a hurricane, the winds flow along the pressure gradient. The tighter the gradient of low pressure to high pressure will usually mean faster winds. The fast pressure drops will usually be accompanied with stronger winds Most of the winds occur higher off of the surface. Rainbands can force these higher winds down to the surface.
