Hurricane Raymond became the first major hurricane of 2013 in either the Atlantic or Pacific basin when it reached category 3 status on October 21. Raymond never came ashore, but it did pose a threat to flood-weary Acapulco and nearby communities. From the time the storm formed on October 19 until it began to move west on October 23, Raymond moved slowly and erratically. This animation shows the storm’s full evolution from October 18 through October 23, as observed by the GOES West satellite.
