Elkton, MD 5 day forecast

100% chance of wind >39mph
80% chance of wind >50mph
20% chance of wind >74 mph (hurricane)

Not fun, but the above is realistic anyway. I'm sure you'll do fine.

I think the aggravation of this storm is not going to be its maximum sustained winds, but how long one has to deal with heavy winds. It looks like it will stall after it makes landfall and push 40+ knot winds around for a couple of days. That gets very very tiresome and slows down the recovery effort for power outages and road closures.

Best of luck.
