Default Mexico braces for Patricia, the Western hemisphere's strongest hurricane ever

Hurricane Patricia headed toward southwestern Mexico Friday as a monster Category 5 storm, the strongest ever in the Western Hemisphere that forecasters said could make a “potentially catastrophic landfall” later in the day.

Residents of a stretch of Mexico's Pacific Coast dotted with resorts and fishing villages on Thursday boarded up homes and bought supplies ahead of Patricia's arrival.

With maximum sustained winds near 200 mph, Patricia is the strongest storm ever recorded in the eastern Pacific or in the Atlantic, said Dave Roberts, a hurricane specialist at the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

Patricia's power was comparable to that of Typhoon Haiyan, which left more than 7,300 dead or missing in the Philippines two years ago, according to the U.N.’s World Meteorological Organization.

In Mexico, officials declared a state of emergency in dozens of municipalities in Colima, Nayarit and Jalisco states that contain the bustling port of Manzanillo and the posh resort of Puerto Vallarta. The governor of Colima ordered schools closed on Friday, when the storm was forecast to make what the Hurricane Center called a “potentially catastrophic landfall.”

Hopefully this will be one of those times where the forecasters and NOAA are wrong and it turns out to be really underpowered. Doesn't look like it though

I hope the Mexican hooker neighborhoods don't get destroyed.

I doubt it is the worst Western Hemisphere hurricane "ever"

It currently promises to be the "worst NORTHERN Pacific hurricane ever RECORDED."

However, It has not yet completely happened. What has everyone scared would be how fast it grew from a tropical depression to 200 MPH winds. The 880 mille bar center suggest massive energy potentials.

The tug-O-war between el Nino and his sister is getting serious.

yes it's hard to trust any news today even weather unfortunately. Still, if I lived in the region of SE Texas again down around Freeport and Lake Jackson way, I'd be on my way somewhere away from the sea coast and the rivers.

Fortunately SE Texans could use the rain. And by the time the Cyclone arrives it will be nothing more than a big tropical depression.

hopefully. you see with hurricanes the best policy is to just skedaddle. most of the locals know this and have higher country planned to flee to. this didnt work during one storm that followed them up the rivers. why i said i wud go away from rivers and the ocean now. which i'm sure a lot of smart folks are doing.
comes under the heading 'better safe than sorry'
