With winds running over 320 km per hour down on Maxico pacific coast, Patricia is said to be the strongest and most dangerous hurricane ever recorded in the Western hemisphere.
How dangerous it really is?
According to the U.S. National Hurricane Center, the Patricia is the strongest storm on record in the eastern Pacific and Atlantic. It is powerful enough to cause widespread destruction like lift up automobiles, destroy homes and drag along people caught in storm strikes.
It has also held the record for lowest pressure in any hurricane. The rapid growth of this storm across the Mexico coast has compelled the local officials to declare a state of emergency.
