The NHC has downgraded to Cat 3 with 120 mph winds. There's an extreme wind warning in effect for Naples/Marco Island area for winds over 115mph. Just because you don't seem them on the wind observation, which are generally listed for every 4-6 minutes, not continous, doesn't mean they're not happening.

These are not tropical storm force winds. There will be some bad surge on the backend of the hurricane
