The strongest hurricane ever directly recorded was Hurricane...

The strongest hurricane ever directly recorded was Hurricane Patricia in 2015. The storm started off the western coast of Mexico in October 2015, unexpectedly strengthening into a monster category 5 as it approached land. A Hurricane Hunter aircraft measured maximum sustained winds of 210 mph on the morning of October 23, 2015, the strongest sustained winds ever recorded in a tropical cyclone in history. And it got worse: Patricia reached its record of 215 mph shortly after the plane left the storm.

Thankfully, Patricia weakened somewhat over the next day before it made landfall with 150 mph winds in a sparsely populated region of Mexico.
