Hurricane Odile Hits Los Cabos

Conditions in Cabo:

 

In regards to the population, the majority of the people are safe. Some were injured mainly because of windows crashing, but as far as we know there were no fatalities. In advance Mexican authorities had evacuated coastal areas and readied shelters for up to 30,000 people. Of course, there is discomfort throughout the area as basic services like electricity, cell phones, land lines, as well as internet are down at the moment. Some streets have fallen trees or poles that are blocking traffic. The government has announced the restoration will take about 72 hours. Mexico's Interior Ministry said both military and commercial planes were carrying travelers free of charge out of the Los Cabos International Airport, which was still closed Tuesday.  

According to NBC news:

Hurricane  Odile,  the most  powerful  ever to strike 

the Baja California peninsula of Mexico, rammed into the luxury resorts of Cabo San Lucas on Monday - smashing windows, flooding roads, causing parts of hotels to collapse and injuring at least 135 people.

Tourists and local residents emerged from both shelters and once-gleaming buildings to assess the damage after the storm roared through as a Category 3 packing 125-mph wind. It weakened somewhat to Category 2 on Monday afternoon, but it continued to drop heavy rainfall that threatened to trigger mudslides, floods, especially in roadways and low-lying areas, the National Weather Commission reported.

We will keep you updated as we receive further information. Our offices in Los Cabos have made plans to continue working from a remote location, until communications are restored. In the meantime, we wish a soon recovery for Los Cabos. If you have any questions please contact our Corporate Offices:
