I asked the same question earlier. Skeetobyte told me that the 70 miles is from the center of the eye, not from the eyewall, so it's 140 miles across.
My question is whether the wind is exponential in falloff from the eyewall or it a constant degradation to the outside? And is the max winds of the storm considered only in the NE quadrant or do they consider an average of all quadrants?
