Cabo San Lucas Escapes Major Damage from Jimena

The eye of Hurricane Jimena has passed to the west of the popular port city of Cabo San Lucas, but the city still experienced strong winds, rain and heavy surf.

The tourist board at Los Cabos says that Cabo San Lucas escaped major damage, and the area is again open for business. (The airport has already reopened.) There was no known damage to the hotels and tourist attractions. Storm debris (palm branches and such) does litter the streets, but it should be cleaned up very quickly.

At this point, cruise lines haven't officially announced their returns, but it's expected that they will return with their next regularly scheduled calls.
