Cat5 with 160 and gust to over 180mph would do a number on anything. If it had followed the same track as ETA at about 40 miles offshore of the FL west coast it would have pulled up a bowl of water 25ft high.

Cat 5 storm in the Middle of November...30 some odd storms this year...anyone who tries to deny climate change after this year is just foolish...

Thats said praying for the folks in Central America. This could lead to catastrophic loss of life after the strike just last week from Eta.

Well a CAT 5 would be the end for me. I would want it a good 120 miles away from me so i just get clipped. I don't mind winds 80mph or under. But 160 or higher would not be nice. Not one house where i live on the gulf would be left standing in winds of 160mph or more. Our day will come.

Some mainly cosmetic damage earlier today to Air Force Hurricane Hunter plane - found hail in the storm, pretty rare in hurricanes: https://twitter.com/flynonymouswx/st...12006194868225
