If so, Orlando never really got hit by another hurricane.
Yeah I did the same research and the record in Seminole county was 102 mph with Charlie.

If we get hit with heavy rains it'll be a disaster on I-4. I don't think they've figured out how to drain all the water from a major storm yet.

I thought Maitland Blvd would be elevated enough not to flood. It's the interstate that might get some serious flooding in a tropical storm, like the one we may get this weekend.

Yes its higher than I4 but with all the construction on the road they have trapped a lot of water. 10"with no where to go is high to me.

Both of the lows are trending towards taking more of a Dorian path now.
