Hurricane Patricia is the Strongest in History of National Hurricane Center

Mexico is facing the strongest Hurricane the Atlantic and the eastern North Pacific basin has seen so far.

NOAA just informed that hurricane Patricia is the strongest hurricane on record in the National Hurricane Center's (NHC) history. The NHC covered area of responsibility (AOR) includes the Atlantic and the eastern North Pacific basins.

The minimum central pressure estimated from the aircraft data, 880 mb, is the lowest ever recorded in the Atlantic and  eastern North Pacific.

Themaximum sustained winds remain near 200 mph (325 km/h) with higher gusts.

Hurricane Patricia is a category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some fluctuations in intensity are possible today, but Patricia is expected to remain an extremely dangerous category 5 hurricane through landfall.

A Hurricane Warning continues from San Blas to Punta San Telmo, and a Hurricane Watch and Tropical Storm Warning from east of Punta San Telmo to Lazaro Cardenas. 

Patricia is centered as of 7 a.m. CDT about 145 miles (235 km) southwest of Manzanillo, moving toward the north-northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h). A turn toward the north is expected later this morning, followed by a turn toward the north-northeast this afternoon. On the forecast track, the core of Patricia will make landfall in the hurricane warning area this afternoon or evening.

NOAA urges people living in the landfall area to rush preparations to protect people and propties. The National Hurricane Center will issue another full advisory about Patricia at 10am CDT on the NHC site.
