Rita & Katrina size comparison

I put this together illustrating the size difference between Katrina and Rita. Rita is certainly a smaller storm than Katrina, with a smaller diameter eye. It will be interesting to see how low the pressure can get with a smaller size storm in almost the same exact environment as Katrina...

Besides the eye's the CDO's appear to be about the same size.

Katrina has a much bigger cirrus shield, but they are getting close to the same size.
 
Hey...very similar in size...but I think Rita will deepen quite a bit more. Wouldn't it be crazy if that was an actual image?!?!?!? I would leave the country.
