Wind Speeds in California

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Section 1705.4 of the 2007 CBC requires the statement of special inspection to address wind requirements when the basic wind speed is 110 mph or higher for exposure categories C or D.  

The basic wind speed in California is 85 mph except for special wind regions.  Ref Figure 1609.

Does anybody know what the basic wind speeds are in the special wind regions in California and if any of them exceed 110 mph?
