Re: Category 5 Hurricane Dorian Approaches Abaco Island

The Florida Keys storm of 1935 was also 185 mph. Hurricane Allen (1980) was 190 mph. It's just another strong storm. It's not evidence of anything, except perhaps under some pseudo-science.

I don't think anyone says "Oh, it's only a Category 5, honey. No worries!"
