Ugh! Going in December. Hope everything is up and running again. Saw people in shelters. The towns people live in areas with no storm drains. Hope they get help getting back to their homes.

I have been watching this as well and from what I have read, there is substantial damage. I will also try to find out more on TA.

There is a lot of information on TA.

It seems the Hilton is quite damaged. We have reserved a condo at Casa del Mar so we are trying to find out how bad the situation is there.

Hope everyone is safe.

It's a front page story in the Seattle Times today with several shocking photos. Man they got hit bad!!! The damage is extensive. Especially in the surrounding colonias (local Mexican neighborhoods) where the construction and infrastructure is modest (at best) to begin with.

While I feel for the fancy hotel chains and tourists who had their vacation ruined, my heart truly goes out the poor local people. Fortunately, so far at leas,t no deaths have been reported.

I didn't follow closely, but saw somewhere that US tourists will be evacuated. Such a beautiful place, hope they will rebuild it soon.

<Evacuated how? Magic carpet?>

They are using military and commercial planes out of the Los Cabos airport according to the article in the Times.

They are now, but they weren't when that fact was posted, because the storm had closed the airport. Planes can either fly or they can't...the US govt possesses no magic, nor should tourists get the idea that it does.

That's why they were using the La Paz airport, like I said.
