Hurricane Patricia news stories

With the landfall of record-setting Hurricane Patricia on the coast of Mexico, news agencies have been abuzz with stories about the storm and its aftermath.  Fortunately, the storm came ashore on a relatively sparsely populated part of the coast away from major tourist cities, and since it was small in diameter most of the populated areas were spared significant damage.  We are still waiting to hear about the extent of agricultural damage from winds and storm surge in the area, but here are some of the stories about the storm that I found most interesting:
