Reports are starting to come in. I even got a
cell phone call from my friend who lives up on the saddle between
the two arroyos. He walked his neighborhood and no major
visible damage. Lots of clean up to do. Buenos Aries
arroyo is running and probably not passable.

Theresa talked to Omar at the East Cape RV Resort this
morning. We had three trees knocked and and lots of water.
No damage to any structure whether that was a trailer, a
palapa casita or even palapa roofs. Omar said as far as he knew that
had been damaged as they were all out of the water.
He did say that it was very scary and very wind. He stayed our
home and with what he heard during the night, he assumed
that the damage would be very sever. Needless to say he was
very surprised when he came out in the am.
Power does seem to be out and the Beunas Airs arroyo is
running full. Omar was able to get cell service off the San
Rancho Leonero web site:
Hurricane Odile Update: 9/15 8:00am PST
The Ranch is open for business.
Hurricane Odile made landfall on the Southern tip of Baja last
night and is continuing Northwest at about 17 mph. One of the
strongest systems to hit the peninsula, hurricane force winds
and torrential rain, battered downtown Cabo San Lucas into
the early morning.
Thankfully, because of our location, we weren’t directly hit by
the storm and sustained only very minor damage. Our
independent power and water supply were not affected either.
Most roads are open, though flights in and out have been
suspended until tomorrow. Our fleet was not affected by the
storm and with conditions continuing to improve, we should be
able to send boats out tomorrow. If you have any questions or
concerns please call our office at 1-800-646-2252.

For those that was here for John, he was a pussy cat compared to
We just drove through town, the first arroyo is running hard.
No one has been brave enough to cross it.
Power is out, gas station was pumping this afternoon. Trees are
down, houses did get water in them.
We are still getting winds and rain. Stopped in Chapitos, the
shelves are getting bare.
Its been a very long night. The town over all looks good.
