And the records [I mean the careful - day to day measured, accurate and verifiable records] go back how long exactly ?
Obviously we have got better over time but landmark dates seem to be the 50s when we started seriously monitoring them, the 80s when we got better and the 90s/00s when satellites hit their peak.
While ships and planes have also been used for decades.
Not quite sure how long we can say for sure that there have not been winds this strong.
As it was also the strongest at landfall, I'd guess it's probably the strongest since at least the 1950s, maybe even longer using local history.
Separate names with a comma.
