Puerto Vallarta (Mexico), Oct 24: Patricia, the strongest hurricane ever recorded, has made landfall on Mexico's Pacific coast, a Mexican weather official said.

"The eye of the hurricane has already made landfall in Emiliano Zapata" in Jalisco state, near the major port of Manzanillo, National Water Commission director Roberto Ramirez told Milenio television yesterday.
