Hurricane Patricia

Woke to a timeline full of stories of Hurricane Patricia as it made landfall into Mexico with 'record-breaking' windspeeds of close to 200mph.

50 000 people apparently evacuated from Mexico City.

I grabbed this image from the Earth Null School visualisation last night as it approached - the animation can't be seen but it was whizzing round super fast...

On the news earlier it said that Mexico's geography saved a lot more damage, as the coastal mountains dissipated a lot of the energy as the hurricane made landfall...
