I don't wish to scare you even more, but the force is calculated using the square of the speed, so a 160 mph wind has FOUR times the force of an 80 mph wind.

And where did the measure this speed? From the aircraft? In the eye wall 20 to 30 thousand feet up? I wouldn’t thing at ground level the wind that strong? If so there might be nothing left but sand and even that might get blown away?

Let's hope so.

I just can't stop thinking about what it would be like, being stuck in a high EF-3/low EF-4 tornado...

Bad enough being in one for just a few hours, when you know it will be passing soon, but stationary...

The Great Labor Day Hurricane of 1935 (formally known as Hurricane Three) was the most intense Atlantic hurricane to make landfall on record in terms of pressure, and tied with Hurricane Dorian for the strongest landfalling Atlantic hurricane by maximum sustained winds, with winds of 185 mph (295 km/h) at landfall.
