Baja California Sur 15 de septiembre de 2014 ( Odile tocó tierra como huracán de categoría 3 en Los Cabos, Baja California Sur. Lo hizo a las 23:45 horas del domingo ante los esfuerzos de las autoridades por resguardar a la población, debido al poder con el que se dirigió hacia la península.

El comandante de bomberos, Juan Carbajal, informó que en la ciudad de Cabo San Lucas se cayeron postes de luz, semáforos, techos, anuncios espectaculares y árboles.

En zonas residenciales se reportaron casos de personas heridas porque reventaron los cristales de las ventanas. En otras casas, los tanques de gas estacionarios fueron arrancados por los vientos de hasta 250 kilómetros por hora y en el suelo registraron fugas.

En las calles había tirados cables de alta tensión y se cortó el suministro de energía eléctrica, según reportaron los bomberos.

Derivado de la falta de luz, el ayuntamiento suspendió por completo la operación de los acueductos 1 y 2 y la planta desaladora Los Cangresos, lo que provocó que se quedaran sin agua las poblaciones de San José del Cabo y Cabo San Lucas.

El director del organismo operador de agua, Ramón Rubio, dijo que las brigadas esperarán a que cesen las lluvias y los fuertes vientos para supervisar la infraestructura hidráulica, conocer los daños y decidir cuándo se reanudará el servicio para los sudcalifornianos.

Más de siete mil personas tuvieron que dejar sus hogares y alrededor de tres mil buscaron refugio en alguno de los 164 albergues habilitados.

Por otro lado, alrededor de 15 mil turistas en Los Cabos fueron resguardados en los hoteles donde se hospedan. En La Paz se estima que hay 10 mil refugiados.

Baja California Sur, September 15, 2014 - Odile touched land as a Category 3 hurricane in Los Cabos, Baja Calfiornia Sur. It was at 11:45PM Sunday with the efforts of the authorities to protect the population, due to the power with which it headed towards the peninsula.

Fire department commander, Juan Carbajal, reported that in the city of Cabo San Lucas light posts, street lights, roofs, billboards and trees have fallen.

In residential zones there were reports of injured people as glass windows burst. In other cases, stationary gas tanks were dragged by the winds of up to 150MPH and their were leaks onto the ground.

On the streets are fallen high tension cables and electricity was cut off, according to the firemen.

Due to the lack of electricity, the municipality completely shut off the operations of aqueducts 1 and 2 and the Los Cangresos desalination plant, which left the people of San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas without water.

The water department director, Ramón Rubio, said that the brigades are awaiting for the rain and strong winds to subside to inspect the water supply infrastructure, record the damages and decide when water service will be renewed for those in Baja California Sur.

More than 7,000 people had to leave their homes and around 3,000 sought shelter in some of the 164 shelters set up.

On the other hand, around 15,000 tourists in Los Cabos were sheltered in the hotels where they were staying. In La Paz it is estimated there are 10,000 refugees.

My posts often contain so called satire and parody with supposedly nuggets of truth thrown in; any alleged resemblance to persons living or dead is suppose to be coincidental.

Odile is supposed to affect San Felipe this Wednesday, and then head to Tucson to visit mtgoat666. There is another depression spinning up in the ocean off southern Mexico.

More photos of Cabo San Lucas. It will be weeks, if not months, before things are back to normal.

Do not come! I'm in a shelter at Secrets Marquis, and most hotels are not habitable. Secrets has major flooding, crumbled walls with just rebar hanging. We are not allowed out of the shelter and cannot go to our rooms and get clothes. Cabo is wiped out. It is like coming to a war zone. We are all in shelters with no water, no running toilets, etc. The hotel is feeding us and basically saving our lives. Do not come... At all. Everything demolished.

The hurricane hit here, initial damage was pretty extensive before the eye hit, then it seems damage was really bad. Our glass doors were destroyed, walls fell down. Hot tub on deck destroyed and flooded what was left. Ceiling is presently falling in places. Never heard from a single staff member about evacuation options but we should have pushed it I guess. If you are home and considering coming, don't! It's bad. 6 of us holed up in what's left of our room, the bathroom. Luggage seems to have blown away.. Stay safe Cabo.
