Restricted Data? Not sure why some wind data is classified?

Seems like Weatherflow does not want us to know how much wind there was at landfall. The Capri meter close to Marco Island suddenly became restricted in the past 2 hours and was closest to Irma's landfall. Not sure why that data is so confidential.

Here is the plot for Capri. Note the gap in data. It was not a power loss as the wind direction was being recorded and note the rapid direction change as the eye crossed and then suddenly the wind speed readings come back. Bad anemometer? Works fine when the winds are slower....

You are very welcome, Lars and no problem on the typo - I was just teasing. Hope you all have a great week.
