Storm Sam is raging as Part 4 when Victor forms in the Atlantic

On a satellite, Sam’s eye is wide open right now – just under 30 miles across. It is the result of many eye replacement cases, during which the existing eyewall disappears and hardens, falling in and out while the new eyebrows rotate and contract, taking its place. Each time that happens, the hurricane force can increase. By the end of the week, Sam’s high-energy area extended out 30 miles from the center; now, the area raked by winds of 75 mph or more has doubled, with strong winds reaching 60 mph from the center.
