Felix the cat has made landfall

I first referred to the possibility of referring this storm as "Felix the Cat" a few weeks ago when it appeared that a disturbance near the Bahamas appeared to be on the verge of becoming Felix. I really like the way Bill Murray of Alabamawx.com took the nomenclature a step further by referring to him as "Felix the Cat 5".

Felix intensified very rapidly over the weekend. As a matter of fact, he now holds second place to Wilma for rapid intensification during a 24 hour period. By Sunday he had become a Cat 5 storm. Yesterday he dipped down to Cat 4 status, only to restrengthen last night to Cat 5 status prior to landfall.
