Mexico is being hit by Hurricane Patricia:

MONTERREY, Mexico — Tens of thousands of people were being evacuated Friday from Mexico’s Pacific coast as the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Western Hemisphere bore down on the popular tourist area packing sustained winds of 190 mph, down from 200 mph earlier in the day.  http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2015/10/23/hurricane-patricia-strongest-ever-measured/74446334/

(CNN) -

Hurricane Patricia — the strongest hurricane ever recorded — weakened slightly as it barreled into Mexico’s Pacific coast Friday, with sustained winds decreasing to 190 mph, the National Hurricane Center said in its latest advisory.

The storm began lashing the coast Friday evening with strong winds and rain as tourists and residents in resorts such as Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo sought shelter. Areas near the expected landfall braced for potentially catastrophic 200-mph sustained winds and torrential rains. http://www.local10.com/news/powerful-hurricane-patricia-menaces-mexico/36004088

The excessive wind speeds, according to the head of the Mexican agency that includes its national weather service, “makes Patricia the most dangerous storm in history.” …Already, Patricia is “the strongest hurricane on record in the National Hurricane Center’s area of responsibility (AOR) which includes the Atlantic and the eastern North Pacific basins,” according to a Friday morning forecast discussion.

The closest contender, at this point, might be Hurricane Camille, which battered the U.S. Gulf Coast in 1969. Patricia looks to be more powerful than that storm, as well as stronger than Hurricane Andrew in 1992, Katrina in 2005 and many others.

It’s already surpassed them in one way: its central pressure reading — the weight of the air above a system — which is a key measure of any storm’s strength.

The midday Friday central pressure recording of 879 millibars (the barometric pressure equivalent is 25.96 inches) “is the lowest for any tropical cyclone globally for over 30 years,” according to the Met Office, Britain’s weather service. http://www.cnn.com/2015/10/23/americas/hurricane-patricia/

Really, really strong

“Patricia is now the strongest ever hurricane to hit the eastern north Pacific region,” Clare Nullism spokeswoman for the World Meteorological Organizationtold a U.N. briefing in Geneva.

She added that “This is really, really, really strong. It’s comparable with Typhoon Haiyan which hit the Philippines with such devastating affect a couple of years ago,” citing the latest information from the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC).

More than 6,300 people were killed after Haiyan made landfall in Tacloban city, Leyte province.  The typhoon, which hit the island on Nov. 8, 2013, destroyed around 90 percent of the Taclooban. http://www.voanews.com/content/extremely-dangerous-hurricane-patricia-threatens-sw-mexico/3019739.html

Many in Mexico have been evacuated.  This storm will likely cause massive damage, especially to the homes of the poor. This storm is even expected to affect New Orleans(http://www.nola.com/weather/index.ssf/2015/10/heavy_rain_expected_in_south_l.html), which is on the other side of Mexico.

Back in 2009, in my book, 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect, I wrote that the following was about to happen:

Odd weather patterns result in food shortages and natural disasters.Matthew 24:7

The world is actually in a berserk transition, as the real age of peace is not yet here. It may be a period of chaos. It is the beginning of sorrows.Matthew 24:8

Extreme weather events have been occurring since.

Severe weather problems should serve as a wake-up call.

The Bible shows that God controls the weather and does use it to urge repentance (see Weather Blessings and Sorrows).

The point of many of the weather-related curses in the Bible is to tell people to change, to stop sinning, before worse disasters befall them (cf. Amos 4:7-12; Luke 13:2-5).
