200 MPH Sustained

Holy Crap!

This is the most powerful hurricane in history and is about to absolutely nail Manzanillo and Puerto Valarta as well as do a lot of damage to Guadalajara. Worse, the  west coast of the USM rarely gets hit by hurricanes, so a lot of the people there have no appreciation for what these storms can do. 

The flooding in Mexico is likely to be biblical when it hits the West Sierra Madre and again when it passes over the Eastern Sierra Madre but it will still be bad when it reaches Texas, where they are talking about 8-12 inches in Houston, which has already been hit by flooding this week and is thoroughly saturated. 

Hopefully, Ubu and Avatar are not in the low areas.

2 Funny enough, I'm in Austin. Passed by the zoo, where a hastily-constructed ark was boarding...

3 According to radar it's not reaching as far to the northwest as the forecast shows.  Rain is staying well south of Midland and isn't really reaching the panhandle.  Still, we've got pretty strong winds today, and heavy cloud cover.
