    The most intense Hurricane on record was Typhoon Tip in the northwestern Pacific Ocean in 1979, which reached a minimum pressure of 870 mbar (25.69 inHg) and maximum sustained wind speeds of 165 knots (190 mph, 305 km/h).

    Wilber/Hallam Nebraska tornado May 22, 2004 largest tornado ever recorded, 2.5 miles Wide. The strongest wind in a tornado was doppler radar derived and it was 318 mph in strength. That was near Oklahoma City in 1999. That wind though was not at the surface - it was 65 feet above the surface.
