Winds Can Speed

Yesterday the wind was recorded at Europie, Ness, Isle of Lewis, to be speeding at 116 mph. That's, of course, fast, but does not quite match the 134 mph gust recorded on North Rona on the night of 11 / 12 January 2005. The seas can be pounding the shores during one season and the beach, at Europie (below) can look benign within a relatively short time.
