5. IT mostly likely will be fine...
it is designed to take 200 mph winds, and thats with a factor of safety, so it probably could take 250 gusts and be ok.

In any event, there may be that .1% chance that the Dome will fail, however, that beats the 90% chance that the vast majority of people taking shelter will see their homes destoryed (and them along with it if they had stayed)
