Re: Watch out for Patricia

Perhaps Zee will have to do some boat laundry if any salt moisture got in... Much worse could have been. A news report said Barra had roof damage, some trees and poles down, some surge.

Looking for another pretty place to work on the boat.
I was seeing photos online last night about 3am.. it looked..... well... like a hurricane went thru the area.. It was not a heavily populated area of Mexico to begin with. and now that its way inland and interacting with the Sierra Madre..its already down to a tropical storm.. or lower...

Re: Watch out for Patricia

Is it just me, or did the media make way too much hype about it being the worse hurricane ever? I mean Katrina.....hello! Perhaps its micro size was why?

Patricia was the worst hurricane reaching landfall ever recorded in the Pacific based on measured wind speed and lowest barometric pressure.

Hurricane Katrina was the costliest hurricane on record worldwide but only ranks third in terms of worldwide natural disasters. The earthquake and tsunami in Japan 2011 ranks #1 and caused three times as much financial damage and deaths.

Re: Watch out for Patricia

Cherise, not really. Highest wind speed and lowest millibar reading in eastern pacific recorded history EVER!

If this tight vicious monster had swung north toward Cabo and raked the coast lines it would have been utter mayhem of the ugliest order.

Mexico dodged a nasty bullet in this one. If u can say a Cat 5 is lucky, which u can't, it landed at the best place IMO to dissipate in the mountainous terrain. The other thing Cherise, this storm went from a tropical depression of 40 knots to over 180 knots "true measurement" ( not calculated) in less than 24 hours. The weather scientist state they have never seen a storm "intensify" like this in recorded history. My beliefs are that it is directly connected to the Super El NiŮo event of this year. CF members step in and correct me if I mis-spoke.

Cherise so it is not a news hype but accurate reporting. The wonderful miracle is that she turned east at a spot that defanged her in a hurry. They got so lucky in so many ways.

Also, yet to come, will be the runoffs, flooding, and carnage from mud slides. Arizona is already saturated from its last run in. I think Texas is in for a bit of a lashing soon.

Re: Watch out for Patricia

Azul, thanks for the statistics. How did it rate the tsunami in Indonesia that took hundreds of thousands of lives ? To me that was the worst disaster I have seen in my lifetime?

Isn't it funny, in a morbid sense, that men's disasters are bigger and more costly than what Mother Nature can visit us with. Compare how many lives and infrastructure are lost during World War I & II. Millions of lives and some countries almost wiped out of existence. Even Mother Nature pales in comparison to that.

Yes, and now Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. And the beat goes on.

Re: Watch out for Patricia

Patricia had more the feel of a humongous Tornado rather than a Hurricane.

There must have been some really powerful upper air enhancers to create such a powerful TRS so quickly.

I imagine they will be studying this one closely for years.

The blessing is that it formed so close to land that its intensity did not have time to cover a much larger area before landfall.

Zee certainly dodged a bullet:thumbup:
