Hurricane Wind Speeds

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What criteria is used for the hurricane wind speeds that are reported by the National Weather Service?  Are they 3-second gust?  fastest-mile?  something else?
 
I'm just trying to correlate the wind speeds that are being reported to what we design for per the ASCE 7 code.
