First Assessments on Patricia's Damage

Wow. It looks like the warnings worked.

According to CNN:

MEXICO CITY — Early reports in the aftermath of Hurricane Patricia — one of the biggest storms to ever make landfall — were cautiously optimistic: No deaths were reported and no signs of major damage were seen along Mexico's Pacific seaboard.

Mario Anguiano, governor of the state of Colima, which includes the coastal city of Manzanillo, toured the impacted area just before midnight Friday – nearly six hours after Patricia's landfall – and saw minor damage to buildings and roads but said there were no reported deaths or major damage to infrastructure, such as downed bridges.

"The saving of lives has been exceptional," he said in an interview with Milenio Television.

Let's home the final reports are as wonderful.
