    Almost like something out of a horror film.. Still can't get over how extreme this storm accelerated to that level of winds.

    Nature's power is fearsome. Hurricane Patricia is one for the record books. I lived almost my entire life in New Orleans and I had experienced 3 hurricanes up to 2005. By September of that year I had experienced 3 in 3 months; Cindy (July 6), Katrina (August 29), and Rita (September 23). Patricia has surpassed Wilma, an October 18, 2005 storm, which had sustained winds of 185 mph and a barometric pressure of 882 millibars, which is still a record low for the Atlantic basin. All one can do is get out of the storm's path.

    Mexico hunkers down for Patricia, 'the most dangerous storm in history'

    "predicted Hurricane Patricia will make landfall somewhere on the coast of Jalisco state -- which includes the tourist hotspot of Puerto Vallarta and is also close to Manzanillo and Colima -- between 5 and 6 p.m. CT (6 and 7 p.m. ET). But its impact should be felt much sooner, with 100 kph (62 mph) winds lashing the region in the early afternoon.

    While its strength could fluctuate, "Patricia is expected to remain an extremely dangerous Category 5 hurricane through landfall," the U.S. National Weather Center said in its 10 a.m. CT advisory."

    I thought this was an Atlantic hurricane. I tried opening the news link to find out about Hurricane Patricia but this lousy safari kept losing the connection.
