We'll let the graphs speak for themselves :
At time of writing, the wind speed has gone to 37 mph and wind gust has gone up to 44 mph. Refer to the Beaufort Scale for categorization of wind speeds. We're actually up to Gale force units here where twigs are broken from trees and cars start veering on road.
No wonder Abilene is such the hub for energy companies to build Wind Power Stations! Also, Texas has already surpassed California as top producer of Wind Energy. (Average Wind Speed in Malaysia = 6 mph )
