I want to clarify something, also.

This is the strongest storm ever measured - specifically, directly measured (by Hurricane Hunters) with instruments.

Give it a look. Lowest pressure seems to be recorded as 878.4 mb at17:33:30Z, with peak flight level winds of 219.8 mph just a minute later.


Good find Greven

The same here Doodle, and my heart goes out to them as well even the crazy ones hanging on a plam tree with camera in hand.

Any reports of boats lost at sea, caught in the storm before they could make landfall?

I don't seem to be having any luck finding recent news thus far either.

I keep refreshing google with the search words "hurricane patricia" to see what's the latest, but there just doesn't seem to be much at all.

I'm with ya. It looks like I made that statement about El Nino on your reply. No, i'm a firm believer that warming Pacific waters are indeed from global warming, resulting in much more frequent and intense tropical weather.


Interestingly, there is talk in the climate community that over the last 10-15 years there seems to have been some kind of change in the weather patterns in the Pacific which (until this year) resulted in more than usual amount of heat being transported down underwater. The result was that the surface temperatures didn't go up quite as fast (and I mean that, not the bogus 'no global warming since 98') as earlier models said [which don't have full ocean/atmosphere physics as it's very difficult], but of course ocean heat content observations went straight up without any pause.

Now that El Nino is here again, that heat comes back up and sure enough it's a whopper and 2015 is going to blow all the records away.

For those interested in live feeds, here's one 2 obtained from YouTube live cam coverage of Hurricane Patrica.

Well...
Recorded gust of 210 mph... wind speed later of 185mph... and 162mph for the last 15min recorded.

There may not be much left there to tell a story until recovery teams get there later.

Hurricane Patricia has made landfall at 165 mph, still a Category 5. Strongest ever to make landfall? Is that true?


No, not quite, but it's really up there.


This is one of the biggest ones:

en.wikipedia.org...

And Super Typhoon Hiayan 2 years ago, which caused catastrophic damage was the strongest recorded at landfall.

In entire the 20th century, there were only three which hit the USA at category 5.

This is why the idea of protecting cities with higher sea-walls because of sea level rise isn't going to work so well in many places. It's not the sea level rise, but the storm surge which really gets you, and a huge tropical storm is just so much more powerful---if the engineering fails anywhere [and somewhere it will against a monster cat 5 storm] and the sea level is higher than the land, it will be a titanic catastrophe.

There aren't hurricanes in the Netherlands so it works there.

I pray we never have a monster like that come calling to Florida on the West coast near Tampa. It will be a true Catastrophe. Hurricane Charlie did a ton of damage from the coast to Orlando. If it had come up Tampa Bay like it was predicted to do, it would have been devastation on a biblical scale. I know I wouldn't be sticking around if one like this was churning up the coast. Pray for these people because I think we are going to see a massive disaster in the morning.

Sincere best wishes to anyone in this thing's path. Hope any ATSers in that neck of the woods are alright. Stay safe.

Peace.

I have heard from a friend from Puerto Vallarta, said that
Mazatlan has been hard hit by the Hurricane.

Patricia was expected to hit Manzanillo. Puerto Vallarta is
in the middle somewhat. on the coast, with Mazatlan being
up the coast apprx at the widest part of the Gulf of Mexico.

No details beyond that, If I hear anymore I will post.

Prayers for all.

Not sure about this hurricane but we been having a fun day in Texas at least DFW metro. Watching crazy flooding cruising around having to be diverted multiple times throughout the day. Just used a bread plastic bag to protect the phone headphones around the block a mile still flooding out there. Feels like information overload, all these damned thoughts bubbling out the puddles. Good stuff.
