Wilma Makes Landfall at Cozumel

Just a quick update: Wilma is making landfall at Cozumel and should proceed over the northeastern tip of the Yucatan over the next several hours.

Cozumel and Cancun are getting absolutely battered and will sustain some significant damage. Lucky for them they are on the western edge of the eye as the northeastern quadrant is traditionally the stronger part of the storm.
As of the 2PM EDT advisory, the intensity was adjusted to show a winds of 140 mph and a pressure drop to 926 mb. Wilma remains a very strong hurricane capable of doing tremendous damage. We are going to have to wait and see how long she spends over land before determining how strong she will be when she makes her second landfall over Florida.

Bryan will have much more on this later tonight.
