Patricia, the strongest hurricane ever recorded at sea, approached Mexico's Pacific coast with such ferocity that one official predicted it would become the most dangerous storm in history.

Thousands were evacuated from luxury beach resorts and impoverished hamlets long before the powerful Category 5 storm touched down Friday evening near Cuixmala in southwestern Mexico. Its crushing 165-mph sustained winds uprooted trees and toppled power lines. Heavy rains unleashed mudslides.
