Hurricane Odile Slams Baja California

Last night, Odile made landfall near Cabo San Lucas, Mexico as a major hurricane with sustained wind speeds estimated at 125 mph.

Heavy rain and damaging wind impacted the city and much of the southern Baja Peninsula.

The landfall wind speed ties Hurricane Olivia in 1967 for the strongest hurricane to make landfall on Baja California.

Odile is expected to track north along the peninsula, weakening in the next few days but delivering heavy rain.

Tropical moisture will fill into the Southwestern U.S., bringing a threat of flash flooding this week.
