Hurricane Winds in Eastern Virginia

Here is the Doppler radar measurement of wind speeds with the deep blue color = hurricane force.

The peak wind the last hour at the Richmond Airport is 60 knots = 69 mph. So, it is very likely hurricane winds are occurring in the deep blue area.  These winds and the hurricane are moving slightly east of north.

The experimental wind forecast for 10pm EDT  has gusts to 70 mph making it to the NJ coast and into Chesapeake Bay with several areas of 80+ mph gusts over water. Keep in mind the scale is in knots (1 knot = 1.15 mph).
