Try around MYMM. A bit north of there should put you pretty close. That will change with time, though. If you have FSNavigator, try finding an airport that is close to the center as shown on a satellite image. The images are readily available from http://www.noaa.gov.
Good luck with your hunting!!

Remember, try this only at home.
It looks like there are others out there who are curious to see what it's like. Of course 140mph winds versus a Cessna at 90kts doesn't make much sense. I haven't tried it yet, but let me know how it goes.

A while ago I landed a MelJet 777 in HKG with 90 kts wind. I thought it was strange with a ground speed of 80 kts and having to crab down the centerline. It was only then that I looked up the weather in FS and realised. There must have been a typhoon there or something.
Thing is, though, I don't think Jeppeson is bang up-to-date - I was in Trinidad on a round-world trip in my Mitchell, set up 'real weather' for September 10th., and flew to Jamaica. In theory I should have flown quite close to the eye, but all I got was thunderstorms.....

Remember, if the airports reporting equipment isn't able to be reached, or if its been sucked away, then real world weather can't load it. You'd have to find an airport that is still reporting weather even though the hurricane is near them.
