I'm in Central Palm Beach Co. I'm going to get it, without question.
I measured on a computer map, and the shoreline due west is about 100mi
If the hurricane field is 100mi from center, and I am 100mi from the west coast, would that mean that if it lands with a CAT 2 ("landing" means eye coming ashore, right?), that would mean that I would have a CAT 2 here.
Or is it reasonable to assume that some strength with be lost due to land friction?
Wow....Florida seems so small at the moment
They way I understand it is the highest winds are usually concentrated right around the eye wall. So if hurricane force winds extend out 100 miles from the center then a location 100 mi from the center would experiences winds of at least 74 MPH but not necessarily to Cat 2 strength. Make sense?
