The center or the "eye". Think of the Hurricane as a vortex that is sucking things up like a tornado. The winds are so powerful that you don't really see it sucking. But that is why the sea rises as it approaches the coast. The low pressure is causing the water level to rise higher.

Why there is high pressure in hurricane's eye?

There isn't. The eye of a hurricane is an area of low pressure. In fact, the lowest sea level pressure occur in the eyes of extremely intense hurricanes. A hurricane is itself a strong low pressure system. Air rises and creates a pressure deficit. This is enhanced by the rapid rotation of the storm.
