Hurricane Patricia Heading to Catastrophic Landfall on Mexican West Coast

         The “potentially catastrophic” Hurricane Patricia, a Category 5 cyclone just off the Pacific coast of Mexico, is expected to make landfall sometime tonight, Friday, October 22, 2015, according to the National Hurricane Center.

         Patricia was about 60 miles west of Mazanillo, Mexico, Friday evening, moving north-northeast at 14 mph with sustained winds of 190 mph, NHC reports. Patricia is expected to remain “an extremely dangerous” Category 5 hurricane through landfall, it adds.

         In addition to strong hurricane winds, an extremely dangerous storm surge is expected to produce significant coastal flooding near and to the right of where the center makes landfall. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.

         Coastal flooding and inundations will accompany Patricia as it moves inland. The Mexican states of Nayarit, Jalisco, Colima, Michoacan and Guerrero are expected to receive periods of very heavy to torrential rainfall leading to life-threatening flashing flooding and mudslides through tonight. This rainfall could continue into Saturday after Patricia is well inland.
