Re: Cabo hit with Cat 3 Hurricane

Does Cabo have electricity yet? If it does there are a number of desalination plants at various resorts. Cabo Marina, for one, can produce well over 40,000 gallons per day of desal water.

excellent . please do something to help, as this is a major disaster.
odile was larger then the length of baja. attacked cabo head on, and bitchslapped the crap out of la paz, loreto, santa rosalia, among other places. whatever ye do is needed. santa rosalia the old marina is no more,
there are still people missing in la paz, and boats are still not dewatered to see if floatable. many still on rocks and beaches. some folks were found dead, some others still missing. was a nasty storm.

contrail. if they can make water and somehow get it north to loreto and la paz and other needy locations that would be awesome, ye htink? i know the roads were out and flooded, hopefully they getting improved quickly...

Charlie's Charts
Thanks to Larry Sharpless for passing this along. It's a report via telephone, translated from Spanish, with an update on things at the marina at Puerto Los Cabos. Edited somewhat...
My caretaker Ruben’s Puerto los Cabos damage report 9/23/14 (as I understood it).
Ruben has cell service and we talked. I cannot get a flight in.
Hotel El Ganzo room contents blew out the windows into the street. You could not drive on the street next to the hotel because of beds, refrigerators and objects in the street. Hotel is “50% there”.
Citizens showed at El Ganzo demanding their food and water. Some fights ensued.
Bandits come by the marina looking for loot, but have been deterred by the presence of marina personnel. And people like Ruben.
Marina full of debris.
120’ motor yacht med moored down from L dock blew onto the rocks, now at Marine Group.
A sailboat that was being used for day sail excursions is sunk in the harbor.
Marine Group boat yard is closed.
El Ganzo Beach Club upstairs gone.
Container restaurant gone, just the metal building left.
Marina office still there.
Electrical power not available on the docks yet. My batteries at 12.5V
Marina almost empty as all the boats going to La Paz or SD for repairs. And probably power hookups?
A run off river ran into the marina making a waterfall silting the marina and making navigation only possible mid channel. Mud and sand has inundated some of the docks. Very shallow water in those areas.
Ruben’s boat 70% damaged. Waves reached its location in the boat yard across from El Ganzo.
Lots of boats damaged.
Felina damaged.
The Dolphin Adventure pens are gone. Dolphins were moved to a hotel pool before the storm hit. The hotel now gone. Dolphins made it and now in Puerto Vallarta.
Gangway planks are missing making some docks islands.
L dock gangway is intact and the least damaged part of the marina. Blade and Simpatico and the Cheoy Lee miraculously spared. Smaller power boats around us not good.
Ruben in the marina 7a-7p. He is at home at night with girlfriend Alilat who doesn’t want to be alone. He stills makes a visit to the marina at night to check on Blade and Felina.

Post-Odile Baja Ha-Ha

September 24, 2014 – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico


(Click on the photo to enlarge it.)
This is what the beach on the Pacific side of Cabo looked like the day AFTER hurricane Odile came through. The two in the photo are the 'Texas Bowhunter' and his girl, who handled the situation well and made a great report about it.

© 2014 Texas Bowhunter

If you're signed up for the 21st Baja 'Finally Legal' Ha-Ha — to leave San Diego on October 27 and arrive in Cabo San Lucas on Thursday, November 6 — you're probably wondering how things are going in post-Odile Cabo. After the initial chaos and lawlessness at the Cape, we're told it's now full speed ahead on getting up and running again. Tourism is Cabo and Baja Sur's lifeblood, and it's in everyone's interest to be ready to welcome tourists back as soon as possible.

Roads — The Mexican government reports that all federal roads, meaning the main ones, are open from Cabo San Lucas to the California border. This means much-needed supplies are being trucked down again. There may be some detours right now, but five weeks from now the roads should be in good shape.

Cabo San Lucas Airport — You can't have mass tourism without an operational airport. After evacuating 27,000 tourists as of last Sunday, the decimated airport has been accepting relief traffic only. Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico, the airport operator, says they expect to resume commercial operations on October 8, which is about one month before the Ha-Ha fleet arrives. We're confident crews will be able to get flights home after the Ha-Ha.


Many hotels suffered damage like this one, where parts of the exterior and many of the rooms were badly damaged. In five weeks they shouldn't look anything like this, and many of the rooms will be ready for occupancy.

© 2014 Texas Bowhunter

Hotels — Once Ha-Ha boats arrive in Cabo, many of the crews like to check in to hotels. Many hotels report they will be open again by the middle of October, with almost all to open by the first of November. Only a few — such as the Hilton — report it will be much longer before they reopen. One of our crew was able to get a reservation at a hotel. But be careful to shop, as the place he normally stays at has jacked up rates by a factor of about five. His new place is reasonable.

Stores and Banks — Soriano (grocery store) opened recently to limited business, and a number of smaller stores have also reopened. It's unclear how quickly Costco and Wal-Mart can be rebuilt and get up and running again. Both were looted right down to the copper wiring. But with the TransPeninsula Highway open, all supplies will be getting to Cabo. Several banks have reopened in Cabo also.

Electricity — The Mexican government reported that while power has been restored to 80% of the customers in La Paz, only 20% of customers in Cabo have it. Naturally, getting power fully restored to Cabo will be a main focus, for without electricity there can be no recovery, and without a recovery there can be no tourism. We're confident the juice will be on five weeks from now.


Judging from this photo, Squid Roe didn't suffer any more damage than it does on a good Saturday night.

© 2014 Texas Bowhunter

Squid Roe, Cabo Wabo and all the restaurants, bars and clubs — Most of them will open as soon as there are customers. A couple of places were completely destroyed, but there were too many clubs and restaurants in the first place.


Most boats survived in the marina, even those that were at the most exposed area, which was on the port side coming in.

Another look at the marina with docks intact.

When your business or job depends on it, you can get a lot done in five weeks. While we're sure there will be a few glitches and minor inconveniences, we're confident that Cabo will be fine, and that there will be a great survivor's spirit.

Want to help people in Cabo recover? The best — and most fun — way you can do that is by coming down on the Ha-Ha and spending money. Businesses need patronage so workers can have jobs.

The Baja California Sur state attorney general's office reported that six people had died as a result of Odile. Most readers know about the three cruisers in La Paz Bay: Brits Paul Whitehouse and Simone Wood of the 50-ft ferro ketch Tabasco II, whose bodies were recovered in the mangroves; and German-born Guenter Trebbow, 76, of the Fisher 30 ketch Princess. It was determined that he died of a heart attack while in peril during the storm. All three were much loved in La Paz, and will be missed.

Two Korean mining executives died after trying to cross a stream in their vehicle at Santa Rosalia, and ended up being washed into the harbor. A Mexican national was also killed after his pickup was washed away trying to cross a stream. People not familiar with flash floods in desert areas have no idea how devastating they can be. Visualize a 15-ft tall wall of mud and water the width of a quarter-mile wide valley coming at you .



Video courtesy Shelly Ward of La Paz Yachts

Yesterday we were forwarded a heartwarming video of seven boats, and mostly nice ones at that, being pulled off the Mogote at La Paz. We're not sure who took it, but the rescues looked like a real community effort — with big help from the sport fishing boat Oso Negro. As for the two women early in the video helping tug on the spinnaker halyard to heel the first boat over — you rock! Well done, everyone.

you too can find this info in latitude 38 lectronic. that is where i left the pix.

was not merely american boats, they were international boats whose owners were not obviously compliant with mexican laws.
the boats were not impounded but tagged for tax purposes.
of the over 10,000 boats in mexico currently, only 1600 were found to be lacking compliancy, and some of those were questionable. so it was settled, for most of the folks. the least compliant are still in litigation

the govt that sent the tax man out to ensure compliance is the same govt rendering care to usa yachties and other tourists stuck in mexico and to stuck in inclement weather in baja.
they even had special air lifts out for those needing to exit mexico(total 30,000 people)..... but i guess you dont know that.
you DO realize the airports and much of baja is and has been destroyed by this storm.. there has been much rebuildit, turtle bay again has fuel.. they didnt for a bit after odile hit.
yes, odile gobbled ALL of baja.
and it is the same mexican govt that sent navy ship to help out the areas struck by the huricane despite many of them being from usa....

try keeping things in context. it might aid in shelving ignorance worldwide.
