Wilma lower than Rita

Hurricane Rita, with a center pressure of 897mb, was the third most powerful hurricane recorded over the Atlantic Ocean (Katrina was at 902mb). Well, Wilma just made everybody look like wimps with a whooping 881 to 884 mb. If confirmed, this makes Wilma the strongest hurricane every recorded over the Atlantic. Track it here with Google Maps technology.
Fun fact : Wilma is the first hurricane ever to bear a name starting with “W”.

By the way, hurricane Vince came and went without anybody noticing.
