    Hurricane Patricia 2015

    Patricia, strongest hurricane ever recorded, menaces Mexico
    Fri October 23, 2015



    (CNN)With 200-mph sustained winds and even more powerful gusts, Hurricane Patricia is the strongest hurricane ever recorded by the U.S. National Hurricane Center and it's barreling toward Mexico's Pacific coast Friday.

    The Miami-based meteorological center, in its 8 a.m. advisory, warned of a "potentially catastrophic landfall in southwestern Mexico" later Friday. While its strength could fluctuate, "Patricia is expected to remain an extremely dangerous Category 5 hurricane through landfall."

    Patricia has potential to cause massive death and destruction for a large swath of the Mexican Pacific coast, including the tourist hot spots of Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco.

    Prayers for all, in its path

    Hubby and I have been looking at maps of Puerta Vallarta trying to figure out where a quarter of a million residents can flee to?
    The area is surrounded by mountains.
    I'll never forget taking a bus from the airport to town. Scary dangerous roads.

    I hope Mexico is doing all it can to get it's citizens to a safe place. This is a bad one.

    My sister-in-law lives in Puerto Vallarta and posted this webcam from the restaurant Cuates y Cuetes. It's down right now though.

    Here's another webcam.

    First they came for the communists and I did not speak out because I was not a communist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
    Finally, they came for me and there was no one left to speak out.

    (CNN)The rapid approach of Category 5 Hurricane Patricia has resort areas along Mexico's Pacific coast rushing to safeguard guests from the strongest hurricane ever recorded.
    All flights to and from Puerto Vallarta's airport were suspended Friday morning ahead of the storm, Mexico's Federal Police tweeted.

    Thank you!

    She last checked in a few hours ago to say she'd taken groceries to people when she was stocking up for herself. That's just what kind of person she is. She's charged everything and is staying home waiting for it to be over. She lives on a hill and they trimmed all the trees near the house. I never would have thought to do that!

    I've been watching this for about five minutes and it's crazy and frightening how quickly things change. The sky has gone dark and the waves have doubled in size.

    Strongest Hurricane Ever Recorded headed for Mexico

    Mexico hunkers down for Patricia, 'the most dangerous storm in history'
    http://www.cnn.com/2015/10/23/americ...cia/index.html

    "(CNN)Patricia -- the strongest hurricane ever recorded -- barreled closer and closer Friday to Mexico's Pacific coast, where residents have been told to brace for its 200-mph sustained winds and torrential rains.

    The excessive wind speeds, according to the head of the Mexican agency that includes its national weather service, "makes Patricia the most dangerous storm in history."

    "MONTERREY, Mexico — Tens of thousands of people were being evacuated Friday from Mexico's Pacific coast as the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Western Hemisphere bore down on the popular tourist area packing sustained winds of 190 mph, down from 200 mph earlier in the day.

    The U.S. National Hurricane Center predicted the Category 5 Hurricane Patricia would make a "potentially catastrophic landfall" in southwestern Mexico later in the day."
