Hi. I'm Carl Azuz.
First up this Monday on CNN STUDENT NEWS, Mexico has weathered a monster of a storm.
Late last week off its western coast, a system named Patricia spun up to category 5 hurricane status.
That is the most powerful category on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale.
With sustained wind speeds of 200 miles per hour, Patricia was the strongest hurricane ever recorded at sea.
It had weakened before making landfall Friday, though it was still a category 5 at the time and though it still uprooted trees and triggered mudslides,Patricia's direct hit was a mountainous area that wasn't densely populated.
And several Mexican officials were saying God protected their country.
One factor that caused this thing to grow so powerful, so quickly was a natural weather phenomenon called El Nino.
It has caused ocean temperatures near Mexico to rise two to three degrees warmer than usual, and warm weather is fueled for hurricanes.
If we'd back up a bit, the warmest waters on our planet right now are off the coast of Mexico.They're calling this a miracle.
The most rapidly developing tropical system in history going from a tropical storm to a category five makes landfall at category five and there are no fatalities being reported right now.
Mexican civil defense doing great job evacuating the coast land, the port is now open in Puerto Vallarta.
But it treads the needle, sparsely populated area, 100,000 in Manzanillo, 400,000 live in Puerto Vallarta, and no fatalities, coming right in between it.Just as we have seen this become the most rapidly intensifying storm, it's now the most rapidly dying out storm.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys kept their undefeated football record Saturday, beating the Kansas Jayhawks 58-10.
But the Cowboys' victory was marred by a tragedy that happened a few hours earlier.At the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade, a car plowed into the crowd, four people were killed, and 47 others were treated for injuries.Police in Stillwater, Oklahoma, say it was apparently because of a drunk driver.
What was meant to be a celebration Saturday morning turned into a horrific scene.
Authorities say a driver sped through a parked police motorcycle and crashed into a crowd of spectators at the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade.What eyewitnesses say they saw clearly chaotic.
This car just like-just went in through the crowd, just burst into the crowd.
A crash reconstruction team now trying to figure out exactly what happened and asking for anyone with video or information to come forward.
It's just a horrible incident.
It's very unfortunate that we have to do this.Just work through it as expeditiously as we can and just keep the families and the victims in this incident in our prayers.
The driver, identified as 25-year-old Adacia Chambers is suspected of drunk driving and arrested at the scene.
The university president said he struggled with the decision to go on with the homecoming game, but, ultimately decided not to cancel.
Players knelt on the field before kickoff to honor the victims, and the flag was lowered to half-staff.
The Oklahoma State homecoming parade is probably one of the most wholesome, happy events in the country,and to have it fouled like this and these victims, it's a terrible tragedy.
We reach out and embrace the victims and their families.
