Hurricane Patricia weakened to a Category 4 storm Friday night with maximum sustained winds of 130 mph, but remained “extremely dangerous” over southwestern Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said. Patricia made landfall hours earlier as a Category 5 storm, the fiercest.

Wasn’t Much Time To Prepare:

 

Mexican officials declared a state of emergency in dozens of municipalities in Colima, Nayarit and Jalisco states, and ordered schools as many residents stocked up on canned food and other supplies in preparation of Hurricane Patricia. Authorities opened hundreds of shelters and sent thousands of emergency crews to aid people.

According to the 2010 census, there were more than 7.3 million inhabitants in Jalisco state and more than 255,000 in Puerto Vallarta municipality. There were more than 650,000 in Colima state, and more than 161,000 in Manzanillo.

 

One of the worst Pacific hurricanes to ever hit Mexico slammed into the same region, in Colima state, in October 1959, killing at least 1,500 people, according to Mexico’s National Center for Disaster Prevention.

We can only hope and pray the devastation won’t be to the magnitude Katrina was.
