Buoy in Eye of Debby Records 60 Knot Wind Gust

Buoy SGOF1, just offshore of Florida, was in the eye of Debby and did record the highest wind gust I have seen from Debby.

SGOF1 observed a wind gust of nearly 60 knots, which equates to roughly 70 MPH. Considering that this is how strong Debby was just offshore, it makes things a little more believable as to any wind damage that has been observed on land.

I hope to be in charge of the NHC soon. They did an awful job with Debby. Simple rule: trough picks up tropics.
