Just reach my father by cell phone, he's in Broward County (Ft. Lauderdale).
100mph winds with gusts to 120. All the trees in the neighbourhood are gone, not just knocked over but totally gone. Powers out of course. Windows are bowing in from the outside pressure, and through nothing's broke yet, with the quantity of debris hitting the home he expects to lose them soon. Tiles are coming off the roof, and a lot of water is leaking in, with the noises coming from it, he's expecting to start losing the roof shortly if these winds sustain much longer.

I believe the FLL area is on the south side of the eye, where the winds are the strongest. Wilma's rapid forward motion also adds to south-side wind velocities. My mother's location, 10 miles south of PBI, is either under or just north of the eye, where wind speeds are somewhat lower.
