Hurricane Kay

Prayers to all impacted as Hurricane Kay sweeps the pacific coastline of Baja California Sur and Baja California(Norte), making landfall in central Baja. Due to torrential downpours, severe flooding and landslides in Baja California Sur, the highway is impassable in multiple areas along the Sea of Cortes, outside La Paz, Loreto, Mulege, and Santa Rosalia. In addition, power outages will continue to effect a majority of these southern communities.



As Hurricane Kay makes landfall in central Baja, the coastal towns from Punta Abreojos to Punta Eugenia and Cedros Island, as well as Vizcaino and Guerrero Negeo, receive the brunt of the storm, with winds of 65knots and up to 45mm of rain in a period of hours. The direct impact has downed telecommunication, and created numerous flash floods which have made the highway inpassable in multiple areas outside of Vizcaino and Guerrero Negro.
