Looting in Los Cabos after hurricane Odile wreaks havoc

Residents have been assessing the damage after hurricane Odile rampaged through swathes of Mexico’s Baja California peninsular.

More than 300,000 homes are still without power or water after the Category 3 storm hit the area .

Hotels have been destroyed in the popular holiday destination of Los Cabos but stranded and exhausted tourists have been evacuated after surviving a nightmare of a vacation.

Although the local airport was strewn with debris, planes have been able to operate .

Odile has weakened to a tropical depression, but the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said it could still cause life threatening flooding and mudslides.

In desperation locals have been looting supermarkets bare in search of food and supplies .

A second tropical storm in the area dubbed Polo is moving north west and could worsen into a hurricane but will hopefully stay off shore.
