Hurricane Wilma pounded Florida with torrential rain and some of the strongest winds in its arsenal early Monday as it came ashore in the southern US state, threatening death and destruction. An Air Force reconnaissance plane measured Wilma's winds at 193 kilometers (120 miles) an hour, slightly weaker than when it made landfall, but still making a strong category three storm. "It made landfall at 6:30 (1030 GMT) at Cape Romano," Eric Blake, an official with the National Hurricane Center, told AFP.Cape Romano is about 32 kilometers (20 miles) west of Everglades City, Florida.
