Hurricane Odile caused tremendous damage Sunday and Monday as it made its way through Cabo San Lucas and the Baja California peninsula, and residents and business owners are trying to clean up before more flooding hits.
"From what we have seen around here, everything is pretty much destroyed," Alejandro Tealdi, a Cabo San Lucas resident whose home was damaged by flooding, told The Associated Press. "In the seven years I've been here, I've never seen anything hit like this."
Homes and businesses were hit hard by the strong Category 3 hurricane, with many leveled, and there are reports of looting at some grocery stores. Some 30,000 tourists were moved to temporary shelters, and the Los Cabos International Airport remains closed. Power lines and road signs have been knocked over, and more than 239,000 people in the state of Baja California Sur are without electricity. More than 130 people have been treated for minor injuries, most caused by falling objects and broken glass, but no serious injuries or deaths have been reported. --Catherine Garcia
