    Thank you for posting this. This storm could be devastating. Hopefully we we'll get a Rita instead.

    Same, to expand on my earlier point about Rita, initially after Katrina had hit, a faster more powerful hurricane they named Rita was predicted to hit the US whilst it was already down, but luckily it died off. I really hope this thing loses its energy quickly. The topographical effects of Mexico make the flooding aspect of it so dangerous.

    Really glad evacuation has happened and it's not as many people.

    What Im confused about is that you can see people walking around the pool in the live coverage and you can hear people screaming....

    That's because it had already hit when you made this post. It's extremely rare for a hurricane to retain category 5 landfall right upto landfall, even Katrina had weakened.

    Considering the worst UK storms only have sustained winds around TS force (higher gusts) i'm entirely confident in saying that a Patrica like hurricane hitting the UK (though impossible) would comfortably rip most people's slate rooves off.
