seriously, folks

okay this is a little bit ridiculous. another category 5?

and this one, wilma, underwent very rapid intensification. it went from 60 knots to 150 knots in 24 hours. the pressure bombed (and then some!) fron 984 mb to 884 mb in 27 hours. that's a 100 mb drop, folks.

now, the 884 mb measurement is unofficial as of when i'm writing this, because if it were real it would be a record for the atlantic basin. naturally, because of this, they're going to wait for instrument calibration before they make it official.

whatever it is, this is one nasty storm.
