It is currently making landfall on Mexico's coast and it's predicted to make catastrophic damage.
The government has declared a state of emergency.
NBC News meteorologist Bill Karins warned that Patricia would be "the most devastating storm to ever hit Mexico" with "catastrophic damage" likely between the posh resort of Puerto Vallarta and the bustling port city of Manzanillo.
Also, the National Hurricane Center said the hurricane is expected to produce deadly currents and "life threatening flash floods and mudslides."
