Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

That's what people along the path of Hurricane Patricia, the most powerful hurricane ever recorded, are doing as they await landfall near Puerto Vallarta on the Mexican coast.

The storm has intensified to 200 mph winds in just 30 hours, leaving many people to take drastic measures to prepare for the damage.

Stay safe, Mexico!
