Luis Felipe Puente, Coordinador Nacional de Protección Civil de la Secretaría de Gobernación, informó que se abrió el aeropuerto de Los Cabos, pero sólo para naves oficiales, a fin de ser utilizado como puente aéreo para evacuar a los turistas que se encuentran varados tras el paso del huracán Odile por Baja California Sur.

Asimismo, en entrevista con en “Por la Mañana” de Radio Fórmula, confirmó que todas las comunicaciones están cortadas, luego que la única línea de fibra óptica que había se rompiera, pero que se trabaja para restablecerlas.

Puente también refirió que ya coordinan con Enrique Ochoa Reza, Director General de la Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE), para restablecer cuanto antes el servicio eléctrico en toda la región.

If you are currently in an area affected by Hurricane Odile, or have friends and family in that area, we urge you to observe the following precautionary measures:

If you are in a shelter or safe place, please minimize your risk by sheltering in place. The storm has left a great many dangers in its wake, including: downed power lines, stagnant water, falling masonry and roofing materials. In addition, there have been reports of looting and robberies of people on the street. U.S. citizens should take care to minimize their exposure to potentially dangerous situations.

US Citizens should follow the instruction of local authorities. Storm shelters have been established throughout the area, and provide safe haven from the elements. However, some shelters are reporting a lack of food and water.

Communications, electricity and other infrastructure have been severely limited by the storm damage. Municipal and state relief agencies are working to establish a supply system to assist those impacted by the storm, but it may be some time before the distribution of supplies is in place.

Currently the airport in Los Cabos is temporarily closed; we do not know when the airport will be operational again. If you have relatives in Baja Sur whose travel plans have been disrupted by the storm, please remain in contact with the airlines to arrange alternate transportation and for updates on the reopening of the airport.

Please refer to our website, Facebook, and Twitter feed for the most up to date information regarding Hurricane Odile and the situation in Baja Sur. You can also contact us at 1-888-407-4747 (From the U.S. & Canada), +1-202-501-4444 (From Overseas), and OdileEmergencyUSC@state.gov if you have additional questions or concerns.

Please be assured that our offices are doing everything possible to assist U.S. citizens affected by the storm.

I used to go up there and hand out food when I was in town. Yes, the Me No is a philanthropist. there are a few cinder block ones, but for the most part they are cardboard shacks with dirt floors.

One question, why is it that after every Hurricane the locals all want to go out and ford the nearest river?
