    According to a report from the LA Times, Jimena’s winds have weakened to 45mph, but has left a wake of flooding and some damage. We’re anxious to get some on-the-ground reports from Loreto, and also Loreto Bay. I wonder how the homes have fared?

    The article also states because of a damaged power station, Loreto is without power.

    However, if that is the worst (hopefully), then we should be thankful. But it’s too early to tell. Mulege may have suffered the worst:

    Reports from Mulege, however, indicate extensive flooding. A new hospital’s floors are under water. A bridge leading into Mulege is damaged. And at least one person, an elderly man, has died.
