This weekend is going to be very intense for Mexican residents living in the Pacific Coast as Hurricane Patricia is expected to make landfall. The wind force is the strongest on record surpassing Hurricane Andrew and Katrina. The system is expected to reach up to 200-mph sustained winds with higher gusts and produce rainfall from 8 to 12 inches. The rain could produce "life-threatening flash floods and mud slides," according to the National Hurricane Center. There's a live webcam setup that is streaming off the coast of Puerto Vallarta. You can watch the stream down below!

This area of Mexico has had it rough this year, with Andres forming in the Pacific, but that was never a threat to hit landfall. Back in June, Hurricane Blanca gained steam and reached Category 4 with winds of about 130 mph and became a threat of causing damage. The stormed thankfully weakened during its final phase when it encountered cooler water and low wind conditions, being downgraded into a tropical storm. Last year, Hurricane Odile hit the region causing destruction in the area and Patricia might be the most catastrophic one yet.
