Hurricane Paul Assaults Baja Coast

All the charts show Hurricane Paul missing Los Cabos, with it not even being included in the cone, but right now we are in the midst of a tropical storm, which are the outer bands of this hurricane, a catergory two, predicted to make landfall later today further up the Baja. It was around 4.30 am this morning when strong winds began to batter the coast as the storm moved parallel to Cabo. We are experiencing intermittent rain, which is heavy at times. The port and schools are closed today. Right now we are beginning to see some clear patches of sky. The good thing is the storm is moving fast so should be past us soon. Shown are a couple of pics taken at 8.00 am on the Pacific side close to Cabo Falso, better known as the Old Lighthouse. More updates as the day progresses.
