Powerful Hurricane Odile Slams Mexico Resort City

A powerful hurricane slammed Cabo San Lucas early Monday with 125 mph winds and six months’ rain in just one hour, NBC News reported. Hurricane Odile -- a Category 3 storm that is the strongest storm to ever pound Mexico's southern Baja California peninsula -- made a direct hit on Cabo, which is popular with celebrities and other tourists. Mexican authorities have evacuated coastal areas and readied shelters for up to 30,000 people. The storm is expected to weaken as it heads up the peninsula through Tuesday.
