The risk of limbs is dependant on where you are. Facing the winds while at the ocean or above treeline, probably not but if in land on shore during a hurricane with debree, probably. I have been outside de-icing on the summit of Mt Washington in 158 mph and other times over 100 mph and I still have all my limbs. Wind alone doesn't usually take limbs, its outside forces acting with the wind. The bigger questions are, would you be able to stand or keep your arm perpendicular in those winds while holding the instrument or why are you in a situation where you need to measure those winds for non-scientific purposes.
