Odile - The Worst May Be To Come

Date Published:
Cabo weather - Hurricane Odile eye

Latest graphics show that Cabo is receiving a direct hit from Hurricane Odile – the nightmare scenario for many residents of the area.

The National Hurricane Center has declared Odile to be a Category 3 as it came ashore which means:

3
(major)

111-129 mph wind

Devastating damage will occur: Well-built framed homes may incur major damage or removal of roof decking and gable ends. Many trees will be snapped or uprooted, blocking numerous roads. Electricity and water will be unavailable for several days to weeks after the storm passes.

At this time, maximum sustained winds are 125mph with gusts above that.

A dangerous storm surge is taking place causing widespread coastal flooding, erosion of beaches and significant risk to beachfront property. This is of particular concern in Los Cabos which has some of the most exclusive beach front property on earth. Of particular concern is the area around Pedregal, Finesterra and Medano beach at this time.

As the eye makes landfall in the next hour or so, the residents will get a brief reprieve (20-30 minutes) before the hurricane winds and rain again batter Los Cabos during Monday whilst the storm tracks north at 17mph.

In the past, it has often been found that more damage happened during the second phase of these storms as structures, already weakened by sustained winds for many hours are then subjected to the same pressure but from the other direction.
