Hurricane Summary POSTED: September 17, 2014 5:27 a.m. Odile Brings Significant Flooding to Mexico, Southwest U.S.;Tropical Storm Polo 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. Odile has maintained strength as it moved across the Gulf of California Tuesday night. Threats include sustained tropical storm-force winds (those at 39 mph or higher) near Odile portions of northwest mainland Mexico, especially the Mexican state of Sonora. There will be flash floods, power outages, mudslides and significant damage to structures. It should arrive in northwest mainland Mexico early on Wednesday as a tropical storm. In the United States, tropical moisture will stream into the Southwest ahead of Odile over the next couple of days. This will cause heavy thunderstorms and widespread, life threatening, flash flooding over southeast Arizona into western New Mexico mainly Wednesday into Thursday. Washed-out roads and mudslides will impact some of the hardest-hit areas. Elsewhere in the basin, Tropical Storm Polo is about 200 miles south of Zihuatenejo, Mexico. It could strengthen into a hurricane off the southwest Mexican coast by Thursday morning. Warm water and decreasing wind shear will contribute to the strengthening. Polo can bring some heavy rain to the southwest Mexico Wednesday night into Thursday and possibly to the southern tip of the Baja peninsula this weekend. Tropical storm-force winds, those at 40 mph or higher, could begin to affect the coast as early as Wednesday morning. Hurricane-force winds, those at 74 mph or higher, should stay offshore.
