Downtown Gulfport 

It's still blowing hard down here, from an old wind gage that probably hasn't been calibrated in a while, we're seeing 65-70 knot sustained winds with gusts up to 90. I've never seen so many frustrated firemen, standing in the lobby waiting to get out to do their jobs. It's just too dangerous now.
