[SEDXC] Wind Load Ratings here in ATL

When planning an antenna installation here in the Atlanta area, can I
plan on a max. wind rating of 80/90 MPH?  I know that all bets are
probably off if a direct tornado or hurricane come through, even with
100/110 MPH ratings but would planning for 112 MPH be overkill here in

I am looking at two different roof top towers with only a foot
difference in height between the two but the load ratings are vastly
different.  At 87 mph, the shorter one would almost match the antennas
surface area but the foot taller one would be overkill big time.
