'Extremely Dangerous' Hurricane Rick Attains Cat 4 Intensity - Could Threaten Cabo San Lucas
      #87017 - Sat Oct 17 2009 10:10 AM

Hurricane 'RICK' continued to intensify at a prodigious rate overnight, and has come to be considered as an 'extremely dangerous' hurricane that could well border on Cat 5 Intensity. (Rick is more symmetrical than shown here due to the angle of the satellite.)



Of even greater concern, the forecast track has 'Rick' recurving in a few days, taking it periously close to Cabo San Lucas, on the far southern tip of Baja California.

Current guidance suggests an eventual landfall to the north of Cabo, and no longer at 'major' intensity, but should recurvature start a little earlier and/or be somewhat sharper, it could bring 'Mike' even closer to Cabo than is forecast, greatly increasing the threat.

Rick is now about as strong as hurricanes can get in the eastern Pacific. One of the satellite estimates now puts it at 180 mph. What an incredible satellite loop... very Rita-esque with near-perfect symmetry.

It's a small, concentrated storm like Charley was.
