Re: Hurricane Matthew Approaching E. Cuba, Bahamas, Florida Threat Increases

It is still a strong category 3. Recon is almost into the storm, but yes, the eye was severely damaged by passage over Cuba. Microwave imagery also shows significant damage to the eye.

In the last couple IR frames, you can see the eye starting to reform, and on the FAA radar out of Guantanamo Bay we can clearly see the eye wrapping again.

Several hour old microwave showing the damage to the eye:
