Interest in storm shelters surges after tornadoes

Highest Recorded Wind Gust: Gothamist Weather mentions that Tuesday was the anniversary of the highest wind gust ever recorded (N.H., 231 mph in 1934). As the KOMO-TV article states: “Tornadoes produce the strongest wind speeds known to man, with the strongest of the strong estimated to produce wind speeds of 261-to-318 mph, but there has yet to be a wind gauge to record it — the wind speeds are made from damage estimates.”
