...inland tropical storm wind warning...

the national weather service in miami has issued an inland tropical
storm wind warning for glades and hendry county in south central
florida. this includes labelle...clewiston...moore
haven...ortona...devils garden...and surrounding areas. as hurricane
charley moves north to the west of south florida...winds across
glades and hendry counties will be increasing steadily. by
noon...winds across glades and hendry will be from the south 30 to 40
mph with occasional gusts to 50 mph. these conditions will last
through the afternoon hours until charley moves farther north and the
winds veer to the southwest. after sunset today...winds will
gradually subside.

an inland tropical storm wind warning is issued when sustained winds
near tropical storm force...or frequent gusts at or above tropical
storm force...are certain within the next 12 to 24 hours.

high profile or light weight vehicles will become very difficult to
drive when winds increase. truckers who would normally use u.s.
highway 27 through glades and hendry counties should consider
alternate routes farther east like interstate 95 or the florida
turnpike to avoid strong winds.
