The wind and rain intensified slowly, and it was difficult to assess at what time hurricane force winds were reached by what we could see and hear from a ninth floor. My practical threshold is that hurricane force winds were reached when the sound of crystals shattering was heard from the corridor, and the banging of objects against the walls and floors was clear and sound. I took a peek outside the room and obtained the video from the corridor. Not catastrophic winds, but clearly with hurricane force, therefore I assume this period between 22:00 and 23:00 hours as the arrival of the hurricane.
