Default [CNN]Potentially catastrophic Category 5 Hurricane Willa nearing

[CNN]Potentially catastrophic Category 5 Hurricane Willa nearing
Mexico's Pacific coast
Full story:
https://edition.cnn.com/2018/10/22/world/hurricane-willa-mexico-wxc/index.html

(CNN)Hurricane Willa is nearing the Pacific coast of Mexico as a
potentially catastrophic Category 5 storm, after experiencing what the
National Hurricane Center called "explosive" strengthening over the past
48 hours.

Willa's maximum sustained winds, as of Monday morning, were 160 mph,
making it a top-of-the-scale hurricane. Its current intensity is
slightly more than Hurricane Michael's when it made landfall in
Florida's Panhandle less than two weeks ago.

The storm has supercharged at an incredible rate since it formed over
the weekend. From Sunday morning to Monday morning, Hurricane Willa
strengthened 80 mph in only 24 hours, and went from forming into a
tropical storm on Saturday morning to a Category 5 in less than 48 hours.

The official forecast from the National Hurricane Center calls for Willa
to weaken some before landfall, but the storm is still expected to be a
major hurricane, likely still a high-end Category 4, when it makes
landfall on Tuesday afternoon.

Willa is currently located about 175 miles southwest of Puerto Vallarta,
moving north at 7 mph. A turn to right is forecast over the next 24
hours, which should bring the hurricane on land near the border of the
states of Sinaloa and Nayarit, south of the city of Mazatlan.
