In Central San Carlos, Beltrones was not surged, but I believe it was surged at Charley's and east of there, as Frankie stated, also. Many times it has been flooded, surged, north of the estuary.

Looks like the wind is getting ready to blow its hardest. I would have liked to have seen it during the day so we could get out there and kite those huge waves. We need big wind to power through the chop and lulls can end a session with a thud. Hope all is well through the night.

We took another little tour from about 5:30 to 7:15 tonight. Estuary out at El Soldado near Pilar is up to the blacktop. Roads down by Maru's full of water up to her doorstep. Water up behind the laundrymat. The beach beside Triana is full up to Beltrones. Some waves were coming onto the sidewalk beside Charlie's Rock across from Los Arbolitos. Police were stopping and walking and warning people about the dangerous surf. Lot of water on frontage road by Froggies, the normal lake by the Extra/KumandGo and across at the bus stop in front of Triana. Temp has dropped to a bone chilling 76 degrees, LOL. Went out to Marina Real to check on boat, all was very calm and still in the marina and no problem going or coming. Did see a transformer short and throw some bright sparks and little fireball down from the laundrymat. Doesn't look to be that bad yet but that surf is wild regardless of pictures. Ron

Most of the South facing houses along Manglares got pretty much washed through. Exceptions are those few with high strong sea walls and the four houses on the waterfront hill basically across from Froggy's. It's happened before, most notably during Hurricane Marty in 2003. East of Charly's Rock, Conquistador I will be digging out next week as well as some of the Conquistador II ground floor condos. The Hotel Playa ground floor and Coralito Restaurant got washed through also. Not sure how bad at Triana Condos but their yard and pool for sure flooded.

This pretty much means we were likely washed out.  Any pictures of this area (the first set of houses west of Charly's before you get to the barranca/Piccolo) first thing in the morning would be greatly appreciated so we can plan travel.
Thank you.

Thank you.

Why do you not personally know someone in SC who can walk over to your place?

How negligent is that??

I'll never get how lax ppl are.  Like a big storm doesn't hit SC almost every year?  And why would you have a property somewhere you don't know ppl really close to you?

PLEASE JZ, this is not a time for your diatribe! There are people not in residence that need on point information on this developing situation!

Not to get into a pi**ing match with you, but we do know people.  I've since gotten word.  But it's difficult in a neighborhood with part-time residents on one side and many vacant houses surrounding us because people flee the heat this time of year.  Others we know in town are dealing with their own waterfront disasters or are too elderly and we don't want to bother them.  I'm just making a request for photos because that tells the story better than the "a little bit of water inside the house" message we've received so far.  In any case, it's not a time to make a post implying we're ignorant, stupid, anti-social, etc., when you know nothing about us.
This is a time when people should help people out, not throw stones.  Posting photos helps out.  Posting the below does not.

Spend some time and get to know some local Mexicans.  They are always there and won't bite.  They actually speak english and have cell phones too.

It's time to recognize the SC ppl need to actually have some Mexican friends.  And not leave property unattended when they are in another country and guess what's going on.

Sorry, that's just not being a responsible adult.

JZ, being a responsible adult also means NOT driving vehicles where they are illegal, unwanted and where they do ecological damage. That's just being selfish. It is time that you grow up!

Hopefully the wind will start backing off soon. Did power stay on in most areas? The South facing ocean front damage was expected, how about the Algodones side? Sorry for those that experienced damage.

No more rolling in the trenches for me.

Any updates on how things went overnight? I hope everyone and everything made it through OK.
