Hurricane Emily makes landfall over Mexico

From NHC:
DATA FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVCE WSR-88D DOPPLER RADAR IN BROWNSVILLE TEXAS INDICATED THAT THE CENTER OF THE EYE OF MAJOR HURRICANE EMILY MADE LANDFALL AT APPROXIMATELY 635 AM CDT THIS MORNING ALONG THE NORTHEASTERN COAST OF MEXICO ABOUT 3 MILES SOUTH OF BOCA MADRE. THIS IS ALSO ABOUT 35 MILES ...55 KM...EAST OF SAN FERNANDO MEXICO...AND ABOUT 75 MILES...120 KM... SOUTH OF BROWNSVILLE TEXAS.
Before I get the questions, WSR-88D stands for Weather Service Radar 88 Doppler where 1988 is the year they were deployed.

Hurricane Emily is now about 15 miles NE of San Fernando, Mexico, and 75 miles SSW of Brownsville, TX. Emily made landfall as a major Category 3 hurricane with sustained winds of 125 mph and actually had formed two eyewalls at the time. Now Emily has been downgraded to a Category 2 storm with winds of 105 mpb and a pressure of 955 mb. Emily should continue to rapidly weaken as she moves deeper into Mexico.

    What is eyewall replacement?
