Deadly Category 3 Hurricane Wilma Makes Landfall With 125 MPH Winds, Leaves 6 Million Without Power: Hurricane Wilma did just what head of the National Hurricane Center, Max Mayfield (who needs a well-deserved long night of rest), said: After speeding up from an incredibly slow-moving hurricane over the Yucatan just hours ago, it made landfall at 6:30 a.m. EDT near Cape Romano, Fla., about 20 miles west of Everglades City in southwest Florida [WX/cams] as a strong Category 3 hurricane with 125 mph sustained winds. Wilma exited Florida within hours as a Category 2 hurricane with 110 mph winds and left behind reported coastal flooding, widespread wind damage and power outages, isolated tornadoes, and street flooding.
