this would be the second of the season--Dennis was 155 right before landfall in Cuba, as reported by the recon plane; NHC decided not to upgrade it based on pressure being 937 mb (even though Charley last year was 150 mph at 941)
135kt/155mph isn't category 5. it starts 1mph higher.. how petty. but yeah, that's an upper limit 4. they'll probably post-analyze the winds as you described. -HF
