We are happy to hear from El Codo, who is alive and well if somewhat battered. He’s still without running water and his car was damaged in the storm. He writes:
“President EPN said live on (someone else’s) TV that Odile is the worst hurricane ever to strike Mexico. Cabo San Lucas is out of the tourist business for two months absolute minimum and that estimate may be pie in the sky. Martial law, state of emergency. Only military planes allowed in.”
San Jose del Cabo was devastated by the storm and further menaced by gangs of looters.
