The category alone of a storm is not the only thing to consider but also what side of the eye you are on when the storm hits. North of the eye or south of the eye. This determines where the stronger winds are and how much more severe damage a storm can impact. Good example, even though Wilma was a category 2 it did more roof damage to the Broward area because we got battered by the stronger winds because of the directon of the eye of the storm when it hit. A few years before that a category 3 brushed by us and there were fallen trees and power outages and barely anyones roofs were damaged. Always be prepared no matter what category! Stock up and board up.
