But I still think Typhoon Haiyan is the strongest storm in Pacific Ocean! Which has a horror CDG eye wall and a huge CDO!
Patricia was smaller, yet it's eye was much warmer and it's CDG was also present. Haiyan is stronger than Patricia at landfall, but other than that, I honestly prefer Patricia.
Haiyan and Patricia are two diffent storm types. Haiyan is CDO dominant while Patricia had two bands. Patricia's eye was likely underestimated due to viewing angle issues on SAB (with things working properly, likely was around 15C-20C). Still, Haiyan was better organized and likely had the warmer eye and thicker CDO.
