Wind Impact: HIGH

Sustained Tropical Storm or Gale Force Winds Expected with Hurricane Force Gusts Possible

Minor damage may occur to many mobile homes. Poorly constructed homes may receive some wall damage and partial roof removal. A few houses may have minor damage to roof shingles and siding. A few pool cages and lanai screens will be damaged. Unsecured light weight items may become projectiles, causing additional damage. Some electrical wires will be blown down, and local power outages are likely.

For non-tropical situations, a high wind warning may be needed over land with a gale or storm warning for the gulf coastal waters.
