Here in Naples along the Gulf Coast Herman made a direct hit there were wind gusts of up to 140 miles an hour along with torrential rain these wins are just. Hard to describe much stronger much stronger than we had. Earlier today but the big concern here a possible giant storm surge of up to fifteen feet.

And what happened was if there's a good shot of the storm to be on in the areas of the western side. That's the side that temple was on so the winds were weaker here it was the better side.
