Your post raises a question I have about the dynamics of a tropical storm. I lived through Isabel, which hit my area as a bare Cat 1, yet did enormous damage. Since Isabel was once a much stronger storm, I wonder if she was therefore more powerful than a similar storm that was never stronger. Therefore, will Rita have more punch as a 105 kt storm if it was formerly 125 rather than one never having been stronger than 105?
