Hurricane IRMA, buoy ONGA

In the area affected by hurricane IRMA, seems to be a buoy named ONGA that reports wind speed only 2kts.
That seems to be a wrong report.(too low).
With further examination I discovered that ONGA is the call sign of a ship (bulk carrier) named MINERAL NINGBO that is located far away from this position.
I think you must exclude it.

Irma is now a Cat. 5 with winds of 175 mph, hitting Florida is correct, but it's supposed to hots as a Cat 4 or 5, depending how much stronger Irma gets. Where it goes after that I unknown.
Thx for info will fix
