This location puts the current eye of the storm just south of Todos Santos... over Palm Beach essentially.

Gorgeous pic from La Paz.

Not a lot of damage in El Tezal it seems. Some downed trees, the expected dirt in the street, and still some power failures.

Harald, if you happen to get by Campestre Maranatha, I would love to hear how they rode out the storm.

A couple of years ago, they had quite a bit of flood and wind damage. I was wondering if the new construction in the arroyo south of the camp helped to act as a buffer, or if the drainage channeled the water through the camp.




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

Thanks for the updates Harald. So it appears road from Cabo to La Paz still passable and should be improved by tonight. Power back on as well in La Paz and El Centenario?

We have heard 3rd hand reports of extensive damage on the East Cape but we can't confirm much. Our internet is down at our house their so I can't access our cameras. Does anyone have any direct information about the East Cape. I am told the arroyas had lots of water and many parts of the road are unpassable.
