Official Hurricane winds at landfall.
      #41952 - Mon Jul 11 2005 02:02 AM

I have recently been putting together information on many past hurricanes but one thing i am unable to find is windspeed at landfall. The maps of track and intensity only show catagory. I was wondering if anyone knew a place i could find this information. Thanks!
