Default Wilma is a Cat 5

This hurricane season has been horrible. They just said Wilma is now the most intense ever in the Atlantic basin.

Hurricane force winds are currently extending out only 15 miles so this is a very small hurricane. Katrina had hurricane force winds out 130 miles?

Hurricane force winds currently extend out FIFTY (50) miles (not 15) and tropical force winds 160 miles. Due to such record rapid intensification, eyewall configuration had little time to form. Watch the eyewall go through reformation cycles over next 12 hours, affecting intensity temporarily each cycle. Eye will increase in size through this transformation process.
This is a huge storm, and at 882 MB, strongest central pressure ever recorded. It should reduce strength (hopefully) to a Cat 3 or so by FL landfall, due to cooler waters in Gulf and approaching shear. But,still probably a major hurricane and all interests in the Gulf should heed all warnings and get outa Dodge.
All, just in my humble opinion, as I am not a professional, nor am I rendering any professional advice, percieved or not!

I'm supposed to be heading to Ft Lauderdale on Tuesday for the show, first time ever to go to Florida. Looks like I may not go after all
We'll be praying for all those in Wilma's path.

If it hits the cape coral area, could somebody get a damage report to me, I am a little nervous about my place down there.

Hey Jason, If your place gets hit hard and there's no one in the area, I'll go down and look the place over myself. Call me if you need.
