So, if the eye goes left of you and you are located on the right side of the eye (no pun here believe me) then the force of the wind is increased by the forward speed of the hurricane. For example, if the eye goes west of Orlando and the hurricane is traveling at 10mph and the wind speed is say 100mph, then you add 10mph to the 100mph a total of 110mph in Orlando, just to use round numbers. Likewise, if the forward speed is 20mph then the total affect would be 120mph in Orlando. This is a Hugh hurricane which will probably spun twisters with much higher force winds around them. Think safety first.
