Re: Fay's Florida Impact Potential

Just a note, to say a Cat 1 is nothing to be concerned about is not a very smart thing. Go outside and try standing in a fifty mile an hour sustained wind, then throw in rain, it is not a very comfortable thing to do. A Cat 1 has winds up into the eighties and nineties, and to tell someone that this is something that they experience in a thunderstorm does not make sense to me. A high end tropical storm or a low end hurricane is something to be respected. Just my opinion from a lot of experience.
