You shouldn't call people liars if you're ignorant.

Wind gusts near 100 mph reported; about 25,500 without power

Genuine 100mph gusts...guessed at the steady 75mph...could have been about 68 mph or so, I was on the road that day.

That was the second time that I've seen 100 mph wind gusts, last time was in Oregon during a 100 year storm...wiped out our last drive-in theatre.
