Hurricane Patricia Strongest on Record

         Hurricane Patricia, which formed in the North Pacific in October 2015, now is regarded as the strongest hurricane on record. On October 23, while still out as sea, Patricia’s maximum sustained winds reached an estimated peak of 215 mph making it the strongest hurricane on record in the eastern North Pacific and stronger than any Atlantic Basin hurricane on record.

         That assessment is part of the complete tropical cyclone report on Hurricane Patricia released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Thursday, February 4, 2016. It is important to note, NOAA states, that records for the most intense eastern North Pacific hurricanes are particularly uncertain prior to 1988. Records for the most extreme Atlantic hurricanes are considered reliable beginning in the early 1970s.

         Patricia made landfall along a sparsely populated part of southwestern Mexico as a Category 4 storm with peak wind speeds of 150 mph. Patricia becomes the strongest hurricane on record to make landfall in Mexico.
