Fort Lauderdale had gusts of 92 mph and sustained 65 mph winds from Katrina. *The standard engineering rule of thumb is a one mph increase per floor, so I had winds well in excess of 100 up here on the 18th floor. *The windows bowed in and out and standing on the balcony was exhilarating to say the least. *There were whitecaps in my manhattan.

This is kinda' spooky. That is a tanker on the horizon.
I zoomed in on the tanker that is about five miles off shore in the Gulf Stream.
