The wind sensor at the Naples Airport (KAPF) has apparently failed.

The Key West Airport wind gauge went off the air some time after 7:53AM, before the eye hit
The Fort Myers Orange River inland weather station failed about 5:30PM

FAA standard sensor quotes accuracy to 160 mph (75 m/s), so,that will be close to failure speed. The optional ultrasonic gauge has no "limiting" wind speed, but can only detect to 70 m/s (~156 mph). They both effectively can only measure about 135-140 kits. Interestingly, the ultrasonic gauge is also limited to rainfall of 300 mm/h (a little over 11" per hour) or less...not often an issue.
