You'd think that, but as the HHs have found out and according to the NHC there are multiple LLCs floating around. the actual vortex fix appears to be between the two LLCs.
From the NHC:

"THERE ARE MULTIPLE SWIRLS APPARENT ON THE SATELLITE IMAGERY ROTATING IN THE
LARGER CIRCULATION ENVELOPE WITH A MEAN CENTER TO THE WEST OF THE
DEEP CONVECTION."

What you see racing off to the west is not the true LLC of Erika.
