JMII - pay attention to the motion of the outer, larger eye, not the inner eye. The inner eye is floating around a bit within it and it's harder to track direction.
Colleen - generally when hurricane hunters report lightening in the eyewall, it means significant strengthening. That lightening was coincident to when the big flare up of deep convection occurred out of the inner eyewall on IR. Since then the lightening has died down to only a stroke every 10-20 minutes, and the convection has become more uniform per IR.
The inner eye is staying pretty much the same size, but the outer eyewall is contracting quickly on it. Last three recon's had the outer eyewall at 65, 60, and 50nm respectively, while the inner eye has been around 7 to 8nm.
