Yeah, 55 sustained is no problem, but those 75 mph gusts will get you every time.

Shoot, I'm lucky my house is still standing down here on the coast. It was rocking all night!

Downright insane. I had 2 stoneware planters blown off the (west) back wall of house and busted apart. Wind must have slammed the house and split, with some going downward. These things were no joke, 75+ pounds without dirt and plant. Rest of the yard looks like the Tunguska event played out again, have 30-40 black orchid pots down.
