Over 230mph wind gusts.

Wilma's pressure was 982

Patricia is 980.

Just imagine... this might have all been a normal thing in the 1700s or 1800s. Just wish we had more records. Either way... Impressive for sure.

I learned the Earth will produce and create anything, we just don't have the knowledge and tools to know it.

Quote from goodmockingbirds' link:

2h2 hours ago
Josh Morgerman ‏@iCyclone
This is a shelter in San Mateo. No interior rooms, all glass. We explained why this is bad & suggested alternative. unquote.

I took a look at that 'shelter.' Did you see the glass windows and chairs all stacked up inside?
Those people best take his advice and leave, or they'll most likely die.

Also, thought pressure was 880, not 980? (to Cambium)

And I understand wanting to study hurricanes, but to race for the eye such as Josh Morgerman is doing, is just crazy imho.

*And thanks Physcoma for explaining the storm surge.

Yes, the pressure is 880 mb. I would think the wind would weaken somewhat before landfall. But 200 mph, 150 mph, whatever, that's destructive if you're near the eye. 10-20" of rain will be a major problem in the mountains. The next report should be available at 1400 EDT.

The webcams I posted earlier seem to have gone down, or the website itself is overloaded

Here is a live stream from the "hurricane channel" on YouTube with a beach somewhere (?) , a street scene in some presumably imperiled place, plus satellite imagery

I don't know how long it will be active, but here is a web cam in La Manzanilla, an hour or so west of Manzanillo.

La Manzanilla Beach cam

Patricia is holding steady at 879 mb, sustained wind of 200 mph.

Some lady vacationing in "Nuevo Vallarta" tweets back and forth with the BBC:

https://mobile.twitter.com/moorlandgirl

They were going to be evacuated.

Were just advised its too dangerous to evacuate

She wishes she had gone to Cancun instead

They will be "sheltering in place" by barricading themselves in a bathroom.

God help those people. There are hundreds of thousands of people living in that area, this will be Mexico's Katrina (likely worse) I think we Americans need to remember the significant aid Mexico sent to Louisiana when this happened in our nation ten years ago. We need to be ready to help in the coming days and weeks. It looks like landfall will occur very soon. The only good thing here is the height of the Sierra Madre mountains will weaken the storm rapidly as it moves inland. In the US we are used to these things running inland 100-400 miles and maintaining tropical characteristics, that mountain range will prevent that from happening in Mexico.
