1959 Storm Was Much More Powerful

After all of the mindless hype yesterday about Patricia, they are now claiming landfall at 165 MPH. Puerto Vallarta never recorded wind speeds over 14 MPH, and the storm weakened to a category 1 shortly after landfall.

By contrast, the 1959 hurricane made landfall at least 161 MPH, and maintained that speed 50 miles inland. Readings below are in knots.

Damage from the 1959 storm was catastrophic

Based on damage it is clear that the 1959 storm was much more powerful.

Ahead of Paris, we now have a completely fake record hottest year, a completely fake record flood in South Carolina, and a completely fake most powerful hurricane ever. All declared by government agencies under control of the White House.

You can be certain that Obama will be using all of this propaganda.

    “”You can be certain that Obama will be using all of this propaganda.”” Yes of course; Obama would have been distantly responsible for that fraudulent hype… it was essentially made for his
    Paris agenda… fabricated like the rest of it.

    This is what seems to happen with Australian cyclones these days too. They get exaggerated to the max yet when they pass an AWS they turn out to be a pussycat.

    But the whole world screams: WORST EVAH !!!!

    Anyone have the highest ground recover wind speed?

    Here’s a headline you won’t see:

    “AT 0900Z THE CENTER OF HURRICANE PATRICIA WAS LOCATED NEAR LATITUDE
    22.3 NORTH…LONGITUDE 103.1 WEST WITH MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS NEAR
    65 KTS…75 MPH…120 KM/H.

    Yawn.

      And I stumbled onto this: http://policlimate.com/2011/09/03/weather-amnesia/
      Ryan skewers a well-known publicity whore:

      “…On the spot expert testimony often turns out to be incorrect as Mother Nature continues to operate contrary to conventional wisdom.

      Dr. Jeff Masters, owner (blogger) of private weather forecasting company Weather Underground is first quoted: “I’m hoping for a break. I’m tired of working this hard. This is ridiculous. I’m not used to seeing all these extremes all at once in one year.”

      I’m sure Masters is tired of the website hits and advertising revenue, but this statement is not scientific but anecdotal. To my knowledge, Masters does not generate peer-reviewed scholarship as I have not come across a paper written by him. Examining the 1910s, 1950s or 1970s for similar frequency of extreme events may surprise many including him…”

      Weather amnesia. Love it.

      Even though the blog post we written in 2011 we still see the same cast of characters spewing the same nonsense to an adoring media. No wonder newspapers and magazines are dying.

      Max sust. wind speed as of 10AM CDT Sat. 35 mph. Patricia was a chimney of heat escaping, now dissipated lost it’s oomph! Must be quite cold aloft. But of course they will try to blame El Nino(which is also heat escaping), or AGW, when it’s really a cooling artifact.

    Something REALLY doesn’t add up here. I’ve never seen a huuricane that strong lose its punch so quickly. I suppose the terrain has something to do with it, but still…

    Has someone compiled wind field measurements in the area as the storm was coming ashore? What about the storm surge? I’ll check out the NHC reports.
