Basically, today has estabilished the strongest hurricane ever recorded since the birth of the Earth. with winds up to 200 Miles per hour / 325-400 Kilometers per hour, and is striking over Mexico.... the worst part is, its striking NEAR the city i live in.. ugh. hopefully internet doesnt go away. UPDATE 1 3 AM CST/9 AM GMT: it appears this hurricane wasnt that big of a threat after all. 8 hours after touching ground as a Category 5 Super Hurricane, its currently a Category 2 hurricane. it seems that landfalling hurricanes dissipate quicker than water hurricanes.
