    Here is the answer I provided to the similar question “What was the fastest wind speed ever recorded“: 

    “It was recently announced that Mt. Washington does not hold the world record for the highest recorded land wind speed on earth. The new champion is a 253 mph gust measured April 10, 1996, on Barrow Island, Australia, during Tropical Cyclone Olivia.

    It is unclear why it took 14 years for this new record to become official, but sadly, Mt. Washington has lost one of its claims to fame!”
