Patricia, which the Mexican authorities have called "the most dangerous storm in history," appears to not have caused any severe damage so far.
"[Jalisco State] Governor Aristoteles Sandoval reports that so far in Jalisco no damage has been recorded, they will continue with patrols," Luis Felipe Puente, National Coordinator of Civil Protection of Mexico’s Interior Ministry, said via Twitter.
According to Sandoval, no casualties have been reported.
Patricia had winds of about 200 miles per hour (about 321 kilometers per hour) as it approached Mexico.
The hurricane was stronger than the devastating typhoon Haiyan, which led to the death of at least 6,300 people in the Philippines in 2013. Haiyan, also known as Yolanda, had winds of about 174 miles per hour (280 kilometers per hour) prior to landfall.
NHC forecast that Patricia would remain a Category 5 hurricane throughout landfall.
A state of emergency was declared in 56 Mexican municipalities as the hurricane approached the country’s coast. Thousands of people have been evacuated.
According to Jalisco State Governor Sandoval, over 6,300 people have been placed in temporary shelters amid the hurricane.
