I'll give both questions a shot. This is off the 8pm advisory. EYE DIAMETER 40 NM MAX SUSTAINED WINDS 85 KT WITH GUSTS TO 105 KT. 64 KT....... 60NE 45SE 45SW 60NW. 50 KT.......100NE 70SE 70SW 80NW. 34 KT.......180NE 120SE 105SW 130NW. 12 FT SEAS..540NE 400SE 400SW 450NW. WINDS AND SEAS VARY GREATLY IN EACH QUADRANT. RADII IN NAUTICAL MILES ARE THE LARGEST RADII EXPECTED ANYWHERE IN THAT QUADRANT. In a perfectly symmetrical storm over open water, yes, 70 miles from the center, in all directions. They say "Hurricane force winds extend...", so that would be winds in excess of 65mph. Whether you have a 10 mile or 40 mile eye. Jeanne's eye at last report was 40miles in diameter. So the hurricane force winds extend 30 miles beyond the eye. Tropical storm force winds would extend another 135 miles beyond that.
