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.

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.

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