News weather (stormwatch) reporters are getting annoying.
So they're talking about wind gusts from Sandy. 70+ MPH wind gusts. So they call them "hurricane-force wind gusts." That's just annoying. Hurricane is by definition 63+ MPH
winds. Gusts can be significantly higher. It's like comparing one car's highway MPG to another car's local MPG and saying "they're the same!"
Stop lying to make things sound more dramatic and newsworthy.
