People need to not get caught off guard by a Category 1 hurricane. Even if you have a hurricane of 100-110mph, and you add the hurricane's forward speed of 15-20mph when it gets caught in a trough, you're easily looking at Wilma producing frequent wind gusts of 130-140mph.
THIS IS A CATEGORY 3/4 HURRICANE FORCE! As Bryan Norcross likes to say on CBS, "always +/- one hurrricane category with intensity forecasts because they are not very accurate," especially with Wilma as we've been surprised more than once.
Prepare your home and land around your home for a category higher than the NHC forecast. This should be the case for ANY storm.
