Mexico's cargo port of Manzanillo registers minor damage after Hurricane Patricia

Hurricane Patricia caused less damage than feared on Mexico's Pacific coast on Saturday (October 24) and its edges brushed Manzanillo port, a main transit point for Mexico's car and mining exports.
The storm and its 165 mph (266 kph) winds landed in an isolated part of the shoreline dotted with luxury villas and fishing villages, but missed tourist centers like Puerto Vallarta and the major cargo port of Manzanillo.
Thousands of residents and tourists fled the advance of the storm, one of the strongest in recorded history, seeking refuge in hastily arranged shelters.
There were no early reports of deaths and it appeared major damage was averted.
