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.

Odile landfall

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.

Dangerous Rip Current Threat on Three Coastlines

Even without immediate threat of a land-falling hurricane, the tropics are stirring up dangerous rip currents in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Gulf of Mexico.

In Southern California, large waves have already impacted the area for days and there's more in the forecast.

Tropical Storm Marie is moving out to sea but continuing to impact the region with swells rivaling waves seen in Hawaii.

From North Carolina to Massachusetts, a high rip current threat is keeping beachgoers wary of the water.

Hurricane Cristobal passed between the U.S. and Bermuda sending large waves to the Northeast coastline ahead of Labor Day weekend.

Another area to watch is the Gulf of Mexico near Texas and Louisiana where a low pressure has a chance of developing into a tropical cyclone.

Rain totals for the first half of the weekend could exceed 4" along the Texas coast.

The holiday is a popular time for traveling to the beach, but visitors should be prepared if the surf is too dangerous.
