When the NHC says its 95miles away from the center,,that flight level winds, has anyone during landfalls about 50 miles away from the center feel hurricane force winds when they say they extend 75 miles? Another example for Tampa bay people is last years storms came thru...Jeanne and Francais,, Jeanne was still reported at 75mph just west of Lakeland,,but Lakelands highest wind sustained was 68mph when it was southeast of there at 85mph or again people in plant city near had winds over 60-65mph.,,,only 20 miles from the center. Even though these systems are large,,,the wind fields are so tight around the center near the surface and is generally several hundred feet up.
