san carlos hurricane norbert

Hi, I was just wondering if there was any damage from hurricane norbert in San carlos Mexico a couple of weeks ago. I would like to hear from anybody that knows or was there what hit there if anything. We plan on heading there from Ecuador in the future and want to know what kind of danger from hurricanes there might be there as we plan on putting the boat on the hard there.
Thanks in advance.

Norbert hit mainland Mexico's Sonora coast early Sunday as a Category 1 hurricane with winds near 85 mph (140 kph) after crossing the Baja California peninsula on Saturday, said the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami.
Sonora Civil Protection Director Willebado Alatriste said authorities were still evaluating the damages, but they did not appear to be widespread.
