This September Hurricane Odile, was the largest hurricane to ever hit Los Cabos. And it was a direct hit. It decimated the southern Baja. Just ripped it up. While some hotels, restaurants and houses sustained minor damage, others were completely wiped out.
The news coverage of this disaster was ridiculous. What news coverage? I think the Weather Channel had the best, or so I’m told, our Canadian Weather Network, was absolutely lame.
Entire neighbourhoods are gone. People are left homeless. Animals were abandoned by evacuees. It’s crazy the mayhem and destruction that followed this monster created by mother nature.
Now, a week and a half later, hotel workers that lost their homes have now showed up at work, to help get the hotels back up and running. Many restaurants have reopened. And the brooms and shovels are out as the clean up has begun. The Mexican government is hiring thousands of workers to help with the clean up as well.
Cabo will bounce back faster and stronger than anyone could have imagined.
That being said, so much help is needed.
I have friends down there right now who have witnessed the devastation. Talked to families who have lost everything. Fed stray dogs and cats that were once family pets, now left to wander the streets. I am told one person actually has 19 dogs in her house. Wow!
The firefighters are not really funded down there, they are mostly a volunteer organization. And while their homes have been destroyed, they are out there helping with the clean up, first aid and the restoration of Cabo.
All of these areas need help. They need money to buy food, medicine, building supplies, cleaning supplies and more.
I am asking you…if you are reading this right now, please donate. I’m not asking for a hundred dollars, although that would be nice. 5 bucks will go a long way! Please give what you can give. Every penny will help…feed a dog, buy diapers, rebuild the fire hall, support a family, etc.
