Odile didnt rain on our parade here in Asuncion...but the Vizcaino Valley got hammered. Today we took a trip to Guerrero Negro and there were many CFE rigs heading to Asuncion, La Bocana, Abreojos so they are braced for action in central Baja.
We heard a rumour that they were thinking of evacuating some areas of Vizcaino as it floods pretty bad with alot of rain.

The key words:
...primary threat associated with Sergio and its remnants continues to be life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides within mountainous terrain in the Mexico states of Baja California Sur, Sonora.

("Sur" here really means "Central Baja").

50 knots winds tomorrow at BA, slightly less in BOLA.

In the past, hurricane rains at Lagoons at camp Rene and San ignacio and Manuela have been followed by a winter season with increase in fish and very large increase in bird populations,... so there is a benefit from all that floodwater flushing the land and nutrients to the lagoons.

Got in to Punta Chivato yesterday (hi Russ) afternoon, came down Hwy 1due to reports of 5 being closed North of Gonzaga. Other than the delay south of ensenada for construction, very smooth trip. Waiting for Sergio, will report anything worth reporting.




I like beer, better than most people.

Hi Shari


It has been sprinkling here. For sure, you can't call it rain.


No wind at all.

I don't post much but have been reading this forum for a couple years. Thought I'd give real time info from last night:
Made it to Ensenada last night about 8:30pm.
Catavina was still working on the deep arroyo which still had water in it. Another arroyo in Catavina was also wet and from there north to Rosario there was several places with standing water on either side of the road.
Then 30 miles from Mandaero(sp?) the road work continues and looks like a it could be a good setup for a landslide with a little rain and wind. Down to one lane. No problems driving it but catavina to Rosario sure doesn't look like its going to take much rain at all to wash it all out again.

The chances are incredibly high that Sergio will impact this area significantly, with rain.

The only good news is that the storm is now moving at 17 kts, incredibly fast. Maybe it will pass quickly............or maybe it will stall over the mtns. of central Baja. Quien sabes?

If you are traveling south on Fri/Sat/Sun, be prepared to wait out arroyos. They will be flowing.

Relax, Bob, this one is not meant for you.

Eeb/NOAA have corrected the path a little to the South - after it hits the coast at Asuncion. The center is now close to Sta Rosalia (was at Pto S.Francisquito). But the rain is not centered in the eye of hurricane, it's more at the edges/tails of the path. BOLA and Mulege could still get some. Possibly 3-5 hours of heavy rain, with drizzle before and after. We shall see.

Has the most recent "fix" upstream on the Rio Mulege ever been tested?

My preferred route south next month includes the stretch of road south of B.O.L.A. If that model holds up, it looks like that road is likely to go through some changes before I get there!
