Hurricane Summary POSTED: September 15, 2014 11:33 p.m. Odile Now a Tropical Storm; Significant Threats Remain for Baja California Peninsula Odile made landfall near Cabo San Lucas in Baja California Sur around 9:45 p.m. PDT on Sunday as a Category 3 storm with sustained winds at 125 mph. This ties a record for the strongest hurricane to make landfall in Baja California Sur during the satellite era, according to the National Hurricane Center; Hurricane Olivia in 1967 held the previous record. Since landfall, Odile has weakened to a tropical storm. Further weakening will occur as Odile moves slowly northward through Baja California Sur through tonight. Despite the weakening, serious threats remain. Threats include sustained tropical storm force winds (those at 39 mph or higher) near Odile central coasts of the peninsula. There will be flash floods, power outages, mudslides, and significant damage to structures. Odile will continue to weaken over the next couple of days and flooding rain will evolve into the primary threat. It should arrive in northwest mainland Mexico Thursday as a tropical rainstorm. In the United States, tropical moisture will stream into the Southwest ahead of Odile starting Tuesday. This will initially bring heavy thunderstorms, capable of producing flash floods, across southern Arizona on Tuesday. The threat for flash floods will expand across the Southwest Wednesday and Thursday. Washed-out roads and mudslides will impact some of the hardest hit areas. Elsewhere in the basin, a broad low pressure system about 500 miles south-southeast of Acapulco, Mexico could become a tropical depression in the next 24 hours or so. It could become a tropical storm or even hurricane off the southwest Mexican coast later this week. By Andy Mussoline, Meteorologist, updated by Meteorologist Ed Vallee
