Hurricane Odile batters Mexico resorts

Tuesday, September 16, 2014


Hurricane Odile has left streets flooded, and homes and packed hotels destroyed in the beach resorts of Mexico's Baja California peninsula, triggering looting in some areas.

At least 26,000 foreign tourists and 4,000 Mexicans were in the region, local officials said, and those in areas at risk of flooding were evacuated.

"The whole place is devastated, windows are trashed, trees and electricity poles are down," Mauricio Balderrama, manager of the Cabo Surf Hotel and Spa in San Jose del Cabo said.
