left turn or anything like that, and as you can see, the winds now 190 mile an hour sustained winds as of 5:00, so it's down 10 miles an hour from 200, with gusts of 245 miles an hour. the pressure up just a touch, but from record levels. the strongest hurricane to make landfall just last year, haiyan in the philippines, 195 miles an hour, so we're very close to that or camille at 190 miles an hour. now things are going to be getting worse and worse. workers have been boarding up the buildings as hurricane patricia heads toward the pacific coast of mexico. powerful category 5 storm. it had winds of 200 miles an hour, of course, the hurricane warnings in effect. and you have a combination of the extreme winds, plus the big storm surge, and we're not going to be getting video until at least tomorrow, so whatever you see tonight is just ahead of the
