What a storm. Like I've said before, I see 2020 as a less-insane version of 2005.

Cristobal = Cindy

Hanna/Isaias = Dennis/Emily

Laura = Katrina

Sally = Rita

not identical, obviously. But you can see the similarities. Now the question is, do we get Hurricane Stan, Hurricane Wilma and Hurricane Beta of 2005 in October and November?

We'll pass on Wilma in Florida, thank you. ;)

This is some pretty serious structural wind damage in Ft Morgan, AL from Sally. This looks like cat 3 damage, though I do not know how well built these structures were, and plenty of trees still standing next to them. Anyway, this is impressive damage

I'd accept that being Category 2 damage but due to a longer duration wind event. Sally's eyewall was crawling. Some of these locations had 70-100 kt gusts for many hours. There looks to be buildings that held up fairly well. Some obviously succumbed to the prolonged event though. At any rate, there will  be surveys and post-analysis. It will be close.
