Hurricane Patricia
« on: October 23, 2015, 03:31:47 PM »
The strongest hurricane in the Western Hemisphere is about to make landfall near Manzanillo, Mexico.

It's 200 mph winds - measured, not estimated - blows Andrew, Katrina, Gilbert, Camille and Wilma out of the water. It's pressure, which was 880 millibars this morning, fell a little bit more to 879 millibars. Only Super Typhoon Tip of 1979 had a lower pressure (870 millibars). It's a small storm, like Camille.

Dr. Jeff Masters of Weather Underground has a good blog on the storm:

I remember waking up to Hurricane Wilma as a similar storm to this. This storm has The Weather Channel in storm alert. A Cat 5 is a big one anywhere. Any one recording this storm?
