Serious deluge for Cabo but no hurricane so far.

Date Published:

Although authorities have put Cabo on red alert thankfully there have been no hurricane force winds so far.

Latest reports from National Hurricane Centre  indicate, which were at 03.00am Mexican time (approx 2.5 hours ago) , indicates that Javier may remain as a tropical storm rather than developing into a full blown hurricane on land. Fingers crossed.

However, authorities remain vigilant, putting loads of precautions in place - encouraging citizens to temporary shelters and evacuating where necessary. They are keen to avoid all risks if at all possible.

Cabo’s Mayor said "Better to overdo the precautions than to be lamenting a tragedy tomorrow, our concern is to safeguard the lives of families in Los Cabos, that is the purpose of civil protection, we have to finish this task and once we have assessed the risk zone, we will safeguard and assist you with instructions through C2 "he said.

Heavy rains continue to cause major problems with mudslides trapping many vehicles. Streams are overflowing, streets are flooded, cars are stranded, and the much anticipated tennis tournament - Abierto of Mexicano de Los Cabos – has been suspended until the rain subsides.

Several successful rescues have been made by firefighters  -  removing drivers trapped in vehicles and an elderly couple trapped in a garden.

The airline Volaris  has  cancelled flights to Cabo for the moment.

We will be back later with further updates on the progression of the storm and any local disruptions.

If you are in Los Cabo right now - please stay safe and secure.
