Hurricane Patricia was supposed to be the strongest hurricane in history in the Western hemisphere was posing an existential threat to the Mexican coastline and resorts like Puerto Vallarta. Several coastal resorts and impoverished villages were hit hard, with uprooted trees, toppled utility poles, and mudslides.
Patricia was the biggest and strongest hurricane ever recorded at sea, with winds of up to 325 km/hr. By late Saturday morning, the Category 5 hurricane had been downgraded to a tropical depression, dropping heavy rain on across southwestern and central Mexico.
But what happened in Puerto Vallarta? “absolutely nothing” according to our guest who is angry at international media coverage of Patricia.
