You may have compared values of data layer "Wind Accumulation" ( > 60 mph) to values of "Wind Speed" on meteogram ( < 34 mph), while these values don't have the same definition... See full definition of data layer "Wind Accumulation" in this post.
It is well known that global weather models CANNOT predict accurately wind speed near the center of tropical phenomenon. It has been discussed here many times as shown in the FAQ:
Then you said ´your wind gauge shows only 34mph´. You may be referring to these weather stations showing 29 and 31mph now:
This weather stations show the mean wind which is the averaged speed over 10 minutes, while the Saffir-Simpson scale used for hurricanes and TS refers to 1-minute wind speeds.
BTW this weather buoys do belong to Windy :)
