Naw, I am just saying that we don't really know. I think allot of storms are not given their due credit wind wise simply because it is generally impossible to accurately gauge them. Andrew was only given his category five status 10 years after the fact. Both of the maximum wind gusts during charley also destroyed the respected anemometers. Phil told me once, "in the end what is the difference between a strong Cat IV and a weak Cat V?" Either way the winds were incredible (that overturned motor home down my street can attest to that), and just maybe, they were a little stronger than we think.
although it seems the video has 135-145 mph sustained. Who can really tell? Remember, I stopped filming outside well before the eye came. My mom made me come inside.
