Latest round of dropsondes found stronger winds in the E eyewall. No surface wind was recorded, but the wind was 109 kts at 925 mb, 113 kts at 850mb, and averaged to 94 knots over the lowest 150m until the sonde stopped reporting. Using the usual relationships, these would support surface winds of 85-90 knots (100-105 mph).
