Hurricane Odile made landfall Sunday night as a Category 3 storm near Baja Sur’s Cabo San Lucas with an estimated intensity of 125 mph. Initial reports of extensive damage to some resorts but no loss of life.

No reports yet from La Ventana and Los Barriles on Baja’s East Cape. Initial reports have the hurricane going inland as it approached the East Cape which typically means weaker winds.

Here are reports about previous Baja Hurricanes at San Carlos, La Ventana and Los Barriles:

With the heavy rains the population of BoBo’s will be high near the beaches in the mornings if you arrive very early season in Oct. or early November.odile
