Hurricane Patricia – Category 5 Bearing Down

Hurricane Patricia

hurricaneChris Dunn brings us this quick shout out about Hurricane Patricia and her Cat 5, 200MPH winds.

Chris said, “Hurricane Patricia a category 5 storm with 200 mph SUSTAINED winds in a small zone near the center!  Manzanillo will get clobbered and PV will get significant impact, but the worst of the storm will be just to their south. Probably the torrential rains inland will cause lots of flooding, damage and mudslides. Prayers for residents of Mexico who must endure this storm.”
