Currently, the National Hurricane Center is forecasting Patricia to approximately maintain its strength before it makes landfall as a Category 5 storm, which is potentially catastrophic for the communities on the southwest coast of Mexico, including the resort town of Puerto Vallarta. Patricia has the potential to be the strongest tropical cyclone at landfall on record.

We are not having more and more extreme weather. This is an anomaly. If you look around, there are actually fewer extreme events. We just have a news media dedicated to making sure you hear about each and every single one that happens now because they need us to think exactly what you do.
