The building code in my area (eastern MA) requires 90-mph-wind 
survival, so I sent email to US Towers (at the address given on their 
website) asking whether any of their towers can survive 90-mph wind, 
and if so, with how many sq. ft. of antenna on top, and with what 
guying.  I got an unresponsive reply so I asked again.  This time I 
got no response at all.  I conclude that no US Towers tower can 
survive 90 mph, even with no antenna.

On the Rohn website, you find very detailed wind-loading info.
