More on Evacuation

MSNBC News Services
Updated: 3 minutes ago
LOS CABOS, Mexico - Luxury hotels sent foreign tourists home Thursday as powerful Hurricane John took aim at Mexicos Baja California peninsula, and the government ordered 10,000 local residents into shelters.

At least three hotels in the posh Los Cabos resort, popular with U.S. tourists and famed for its beaches and golf courses, arranged flights home for tourists before the storm hits on Friday.

We are evacuating everyone, said Mithza Velazquez, concierge at the beachfront Hilton Hotel in Los Cabos.

John is a Category 3 hurricane, packing sustained winds of 125 mph and stronger gusts. The U.S. National Hurricane Center forecast the storm will make a direct hit on the resort.

We are trying to evacuate as many guests as possible, said Martin Guillen, spokesman of the Casa del Mar hotel, next to the Hilton in Los Cabos.

We are trying to convince people that they should leave for their own safety, he said in an interview. The vast majority have changed their flights and are leaving today.

Mexican residents of low-lying areas of Los Cabos will also be evacuated from their homes on Thursday, by force if necessary, said Jose Gajon, head of civil protection for the state of Baja California Sur.

Those who do not want to leave will be taken away by the army, Gajon said. The number to be evacuated could rise.

Thanks for posting this - I was just wondering about the weather where they are.

That sucks for the folks in sequester. So much for their tropical paradise vacation. I wonder where they moved them to.

The two evicted tonight will have high hopes of going somewhere really cool, only to end up in an LA hotel, more than likely.

having just narrowly missed being hurricane fodder myself this week with Ernesto - who turned into a big wussy just in the nick of time, i didn't want to post about this too early and send everyone into a tizzy, but with the way it's bearing down now, YIKES. Hurricane John is going to do some very serious damage... The HGs will be fine... It's the people who live there and don't have CBS' bank and liability to get them the hell outta dodge ASAP that I'm concerned about.

Yeah that certainly the truth Carolyn. All we can do is pray that they are safe and that the Army will help them all.

You would think that after what happened in New Orleans the city will make sure to save everyone no matter what the expense.You can always make more money but you can never bring back someone who loses their life to a hurricane.
