    is a hurricane intent on setting records.

    A 10 mb drop in an hour?  Shit.  There's no reason to believe that the sampling period captured the bottom of the drop.

    I know nearly nada about hurricanes.  But that sounds like Rita... is going to become a really, really mean bitch.

    I used to live in Houston, have friends and family scattered across Texas.  Please, folks, get the hell out of the way.  This Rita is not lovely Rita, meter maid....

      the previous update observed:

      The pressure has been dropping at 6mb/hr which may be s some form of record of it's own

      If 6 mb/hr was a record...

      and now they're seeing 10 mb/hr...

      And Katrina only was measured down to 902, and Rita's down to 904 already....

      Rita looks like she's aiming for a record low pressure reading, to beat the Galveston hurricane.
