Gilbert dropped to 888 Mb, that storm was also the size of just about the entire Western Carribean at one point. That's about the only difference now.

See:

892 mb, my head is imploding thinking of that. Did you wake up from that Rollie?!

Eye has contracted from 4 miles to 2 miles wide.

EWRC may begin soon.

A two-mile wide eye?

Everyone? You may now officially crap your drawers.

(They were lucky to even get into the thing -- that's smaller than the turning-radius of many aircraft at cruising speed!)

Done and done.

Absolutely insane.

That's the colder cloudtops of the CDO (central dense overcast) on infrared satellite imagery.

Take a look at http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/TROP/DATA/RT/FLOAT/IR4/20.jpg and look at how much of the CDO is black. Rollie's right too, I don't recall much of the black signature on the Katrina images...
