These numbers make absolutely no sense along the east coast, but interested in what you think.

126 at Fort Lauderdale
126 at Opa Locka
117 at MIA

So the storms was as strong along the east coast as near the eye wall ?

I recall gusts at Naples Airport around 140-145mph. I hadn't seen these gusts along the east, moreso in the 100mph range. So I'm surprised.

Irma was a beast.

Yeah, most of the reported gusts before this article had PB in the high 80's/low 90's, same in Broward. I remember a 100 mph reading near Key Biscayne during the storm.

Fascinating.

Being in the Northeast quadrant + on the coast right off those very warm waters led to quite a punch for SE Florida. I must say, it makes sense given all the fallen trees I've seen in the Miami area.

This report was just debunked. #fakenews by the Herald. I apologize for posting. They read the NWS post analysis page wrong.
