At the 8pm advisory Hurricane Wilma is 1 mph below a cat 3……..
Hurricane force winds extend up to 85 miles from the eye, with tropical storm force winds extending up to 230 miles from the eye.
Landfall is estimated at this time to be around 6am. With the tropical storm force winds begining around midnight.
Hurricane Wilma has also sped up, with its speed estimated at 15 mph at this time. It is expected to continue to gain in speed over night.
Estimated landfall is approximately 40 mi south of our location.
Sounds like it could be an interesting night.
We will continue to update until we lose internet connection, and hopefully we won’t lose it, but anything is possible.
Hopefully it move a little further south and make landfall over a mostly uninhabited area of the everglades.
