Catastrophic hurricane approaching Mexico
The hurricane Patricia, which is approaching Mexico's Pacific Coast, has been upgraded to category 5 and is described as "potentially catastrophic".

The storm was on Thursday evening (local time) located 200 miles west of the port city of Manzanillo and hurtling ahead with gusts of up to 260 km/h.

Mexican authorities have declared a state of emergency and have already closed schools and ports. Meanwhile, tourists are urged to stay away from coastal areas, while the locals have received sandbags in case of flooding.

The hurricane specialist, Eric Blake, from the National Hurricane Center, writes on Twitter that "We have not seen anything like this since Hurricane Linda in 1997".

It is expected that Patricia could reach the mainland of Mexico during Friday.

The US hurricane center in Miami has warned that people should soon prepare for the storm and that the hurricane could cause flooding, destructive waves and spring tide.

Category 5 is the highest level on the hurricane scale.
