Hurricane Polo

posted Sep 18, 2014, 9:23 AM by Tom Kachelman   [ updated Sep 18, 2014, 9:24 AM ]

The 11 am EDT Thursday WInd Probability Forecast from NHC gave Cabo San Lucas on the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula a 30 percent chance of experiencing tropical storm-force winds from Polo, and a 1 percent chance of hurricane-force winds
In its current track, Polo would just miss the Baja California peninsula, whose Los Cabos resorts were devastated by Hurricane Odile on Monday. Odile thrashed the Mexican coast as a powerful category three hurricane on the five-level Saffir-Simpson scale, flooding hotels, flattening homes and sparking acts of looting.
The government airlifted 5,000 tourists who were marooned in towns deprived of electricity and running water, while residents desperately sought aid and basic goods in supermarkets.
A tourism ministry spokesman said it would take another 48 hours to move all the 25,000 tourists who were still stranded after their hotels were wrecked by the hurricane.
Second hurricane heads to Mexico’s Pacific coast

 
Hurricane Polo formed off Mexico’s southwestern coast late Wednesday, threatening to spark floods and mudslides days after another storm wreaked havoc in popular resorts

Hurricane Odile

posted Sep 14, 2014, 9:00 AM by Tom Kachelman   [ updated Sep 18, 2014, 9:10 AM ]

Hurricane Odile gains strength near Mexico's Baja peninsula. Heavy rains, high winds predicted for Sunday evening. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Odile became a powerful Category 4 hurricane before dawn Sunday.
Odile's core was predicted to stay out in the Pacific, but it was following a track that was forecast to take the storm's edge very close or even over Baja's southern end by Sunday night and into Monday.
Mexican officials posted hurricane warnings northward along the west coast of Baja California from Puerto San Andresito to La Paz, and along the east coast of the peninsula from north of La Paz to Loreto.

It was centered about 265 miles (425 kilometers) west of Manzanillo, Mexico and 230 miles (365 kilometers) south-southeast of the southern tip of Baja California.
