Hurricane Willa, a Mexico-bound storm that strengthened by more than 80 miles per hour in the last 24 hours, has now become a Category-5 hurricane, according to a Monday report from CNN. Hurricane Willa is currently slightly more intense than Hurricane Michael was when it made landfall, but the storm is expected to weaken to a Category 4 before it hits the states of Sinaloa and Nayarit Tuesday afternoon. But even as a Category 4, CNN notes, Hurricane Willa is on pace to be one of the strongest hurricanes to ever hit Mexico. The National Hurricane Center also issued a dire warning, noting that Willa has become a “potentially catastrophic” storm that could cause “life threatening” storm surges, winds, and rainfall.
