Earl: Looks like convection is firing around the center....probably be a hurricane soon? look at latest visible...
btw, from someone who does remember Andrew in south florida...those pictures look exactly the same...however...we should note that most of those buildings were built before the new 2001 Florida Building Code....many of those buildings were built under older, less stringent standards than the South Florida Building Code...so although the damage might appear as bad as Andrew...it could have been worse if this was an Andrew type hurricane...we will know better once NHC prepares their post-op research. just a thought.
