    I am having a very very hard time wrapping my head around this:

    SUMMARY OF 500 AM AST…0900 UTC…INFORMATION
    ———————————————-
    LOCATION…17.9N 62.6W
    ABOUT 35 MI…55 KM ESE OF ST. MARTIN
    ABOUT 145 MI…235 KM E OF ST. CROIX
    MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…185 MPH…295 KM/H
    PRESENT MOVEMENT…WNW OR 285 DEGREES AT 16 MPH…26 KM/H
    MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…914 MB…26.99 INCHES

    I’ve traveled 150-160 mph on a very fast, very red Japanese motorcycle a few times (hence the reason I don’t have it anymore but that’s another story all together). I can’t seem to REALLY ‘get 185mpg wind.

    The minimum pressure of 26.99 inches is pretty astounding as well. Sandy was 27.76, Typhoon Tip was the lowest at 25.69 which hit 190mph winds.
