Hurricane Patricia-Dance to Lower the Rain

I believe this beautiful dance helped spared the beautiful town of Puerto Vallarta from a direct hit to the relief of many but farther south people did suffer and they will need our help. 

Thank You to the Positive Energies of the Universe that hurt the prayers of the people. 

Danzantes bajo la lluvia.
Con mi devoción danzare bajo la lluvia, golpeare la tierra con mis pies y salpicara el agua por doquier.  Con mi Fé lucharé y pediré que disminuya la intensidad de tu fuerza, pues mi Dios es el más poderoso, sin embargo entenderé que soy el único responsable y que nuestra madre naturaleza esta despertando mientras nosotros seguimos en el letargo del sueño de la inconsciencia.
Protege tu pueblo Señor.

Here is the Google translation

Danzantes the rain.
With my devotion danzare the rain,the earth beat you with my feet and splashed water everywhere.  With my faith I will fight and ask to decrease the intensity of your strength , because my God is the most powerful , yet I understand that I am solely responsible and that our Mother Nature is awakening as we continue into the lethargy of sleep of unconsciousness.
Protect your people Lord.

Hurricane Patricia Heading for Mexico- Take Cover!


Here are the key messages from NHC regarding an extremely dangerous and potentially catastrophic Hurricane Patricia, as of 10 p.m. CDT Thursday, Oct. 22nd. www.hurricanes.gov

http://www.weather.com/storms/hurricane/news/hurricane-patricia-mexico-coast?cm_ven=Facebook_TheWeatherChannel_Weather_CWi_Article_No_1_20151023_twcplayer

An extremely dangerous and potentially catastrophic Hurricane Patricia has reached Category 5 intensity on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Satellite images indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 160 mph (260 km/h) with higher gusts. While Patricia is expected to weaken some on Friday, it is expected to remain an extremely dangerous hurricane through landfall.

A Hurricane Warning continues from San Blas to Punta San Telmo, and a Hurricane Watch and Tropical Storm Warning from east of Punta San Telmo to Lazaro Cardenas. Preparations to protect life and property should be rushed to completion tonight.

Patricia is centered about 200 miles (320 km) southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, moving toward the north-northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h). A turn toward the north is expected by early Friday, followed by a turn toward the north-northeast Friday afternoon. On the forecast track the core of Patricia will make landfall in the hurricane warning area during Friday afternoon or evening.

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the distinct eye of Hurricane Patricia
was located near latitude 16.2 North, longitude 105.1 West. Patricia
is moving toward the north-northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h). A turn
toward the north is expected by early Friday, followed by a turn
toward the north-northeast Friday afternoon. On the forecast track,
the core of Patricia will make landfall in the hurricane warning
area Friday afternoon or evening.

Satellite images indicate that maximum sustained winds have
increased to near 160 mph (260 km/h) with higher gusts.  Patricia is
now a category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind
Scale. While Patricia is expected to weaken some on Friday, it is
expected to remain an extremely dangerous hurricane through
landfall.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the
center and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 175 miles
(280 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 924 mb (27.29 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Hurricane conditions are expected to first reach the
hurricane warning area Friday afternoon. Tropical storm conditions
are expected to first reach the warning areas overnight or early
Friday, making outside preparations difficult or dangerous.
Preparations to protect life and property should be rushed to
completion. Hurricane conditions are possible in the hurricane watch
area late Friday.

RAINFALL:  Patricia is expected to produce total rainfall
accumulations of 6 to 12 inches, with isolated maximum amounts of 20
inches, over the Mexican states of Jalisco, Colima, Michoacan and
Guerrero through Saturday. These rains could produce
life-threatening flash floods and mud slides.

STORM SURGE:  A dangerous storm surge is expected to produce
significant coastal flooding near and to the right of where the
center makes landfall. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied
by large and destructive waves.

SURF:  Swells generated by Patricia are already affecting portions
of the southern coast of Mexico, and will spread northwestward
during the next day or so. These swells are likely to cause
life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult
products from your local weather office.
