News, Events and Announcements


Road Condition - We drove from Guerrero Negro to Todos Santos Monday, Sept 7. The road is passable in San Ignacio, Santa Rosalia and Mulege, where road crews are working everywhere. From Loreto south the road is fine until you come to our own construction. Buy gas when you can as it's not always available ( Guerrero Negro). Otherwise - the southern Baja is a lovely green. - Lorna Logan, lornall [-at-] aol.com, 145-0119


Road Conditions To Border - Just drove down from the border on Sunday. The road is open all the way, with the only major delay at the new bridge in Santa Rosalia. 15-20 minute wait for single lines of cars to go through. There was a gas shortage due to hoarding, but many stations now open again. You will find gas at Jesus Maria, probably back in Guerrero Negro again, maybe none in San Ignacio or Mulege, but plenty in Loreto. The workers have done a magnificent job of getting the roads open - just watch the vados between G. Negro and Loreto. - Bonnie S. , bonsomedy [-at-] yahoo.com, Todos Santos


Hurricane Jimena Links - Here is a web page containing several links to photos of the storm damage, as well as links to organizations involved in the relief efforts.

Especially moving is the video shot in Mulege by some of the local police officers the day of the flood. Although it's a little difficult to see in the darkness, the final few minutes show the river running through town:

Current Road Reports from Baja Insider
http://www.bajainsider.com/driving-baja/baja-road-report.htm


Hurricane Jimena (courtesy Baja Pony Express) - a. a report from someone in Guerrero negro tonite driving south - the gas station on the highway is out of gas - he has not checked in town....the road has been empty and fine so far - he ran into a couple from here driving north and hears there are no hold ups longer than a half hour - mulege and santa rosalia being the worst hit....

b. I just talked with the Parish Priest in Loreto and they have had power since Sunday along with most of the Telmex lines and today the cel phones were working again. He says they are not in dire need of help at present and Constitution and San Carlos have been getting good Government responses to their needs. The poor souls left out right now are in Mulege. They are without everything. If any of you are looking for a place to do some good I suggest trying Mulege. I also know the Parish Priest there and his name is Father Daniel. I’m not certain if the cel phones are working there yet but his number is 615-107-8114 and he speaks some English. If anyone is driving North and could take some baggage, I have quite a few clothes to send.
Dennis C. Riley

c. Your attached report of 9/8/09 has some inaccuracies as to the conditions in Loreto. Can't speak to the other areas. Just flew from Loreto to LAX (Horizon AL) Tues Sept 8th. Commercial flights never stopped into LTO. Folks flew in and out Tues 9/1/09, Friday 9/4/09 and Sunday 9/6/09.

LORETO: Power restored by Saturday Sept 5th - cell phone service was up on Friday Sept 4th. Fuel is available. Water: It was my understanding that they were having issues with the water before the storm. Can't speak to current water or land line phones at this time. Didn't go into Loreto so can't speak to damage there.

TRIPUI/PUERTO ESCONDIDO: The phones never went out in Tripui. Power was restored by Sat Sept 5th. Water was restored by Sunday 9/6 - they are on a different water system than Loreto. Minor damage to roof tiles, lost some trees and other battered vegetation. Lost some car/boat covers. No structure damage to speak of - no broken windows, etc. No flooding in the lower parking lot. Tripui weathered the storm pretty well - all things considered. We were very lucky.

d. Arrived home Los B 1800hrs from GN Wed 09 condition update road open all the way to Cabo. gas and diesel everywhere except station next to military at GN electricity in most places but Mulege. Maybe tonight or tomorrow. Insurgents out also Cell phone coverage at all towns except Mulege New road from La Paz to San Antonio the worst of all. Lotsa washouts and potholes

Mulege, Santa Rosalia, Insurgentes and Constitution REAL BAD CONDITION. THEY GOT WACKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Loreto too but not half as bad. More details later

e. Please monitor bajabushpilots.com. They are mounting an incredible relief effort. Anyone who can support in any way, please lend a hand or send MONEY!!! Martha

f. I have just gotten off the phone with the President of the Rotary Club in Mulege. Our Rotary Club has sent in a donation to their club to spend on anything that they feel is critical. I also want to ask each and everyone of you as you are are traveling back to the East Cape to drop off food and clothing at the fire station in Mulege who is handling all of the distribution in their town. I have been in contact with our District Governor of Rotary and he is in contact with Rotary International to see what help they can give to our neighbors to the North of us. He is going to get back to me when he find out where the drop off locations are in Loreto and Cuidad Constitucion. I will post those location when I get them. If you have any questions, please email me at bajarhino [-at-] yahoo.com Marilyn Cunningham


Good News And A Call For Help - The Internado is very close to having enough funds for the new beds. Sales from a gift of a Mango crop brought in 19,000 pesos - enough for a deposit with the fabricator in Guadalajara. More income is expected from the Mangos - that and the money being held in the bank from your donations should do it!! The children may be sleeping in new bed by the first of November. A plumbing problem was waiting when school reopened; leaks in pipes in the children's bathroom. The estimate for repairs is only between 500 and 700 pesos but there isn't even that,in the budget, to cover the cost. Please contact me to help with plumbing problem and any money over the actual cost, with your permission, will be added to the bed fund. Thank You. - Scotty M, scottybcs [-at-] hotmail.com, 612-10-05872


H1N1 Flu Report (Courtesy La Paz Gringos) - The following public information bulletin was released yesterday (9/9/2009) by the State Health Department regarding 3 recent deaths due to H1N1 virus. It has been translated and now offered as information for the foreign population here in BCS (translated by the staff at Se Habla...La Paz). Dra. Lucila Olvera Santana, Assistant Director of Public Health, has kindly offered to answer any and all questions that foreign visitors or naturalized citizens may have during this epidemiological alert.

Please read and if you have further questions or need a clarification, please send them DIRECTLY to the Moderator, Sheryl Hamilton. She and Juli Goff will coordinate the answers with Dra. Olvera and post accordingly to this group.

PUBLIC HEALTH BULLETIN 9/9/09
Having received the pending test results from the Molecular Biology Laboratory of the National Central Medical Hospital of IMSS (in Mexico City) the State Committee on Health Security advises that the death of a 12 year old female patient living in San Jose del Cabo is due to atypical pneumonia associated with influenza H1N1 virus.

In the same manner this is to inform that today at 4 pm there was a meeting of the Technical Committee in Health Security, combining all of the institutions that form the Health Department and the Secretary of Public Education, the notification of a third patient who has died due to atypical pneumonia associated with the H1N1 influenza virus and it has been confirmed by the same laboratory of the Central Medical National Hospital of IMSS that as of this date, of those 3 deceased, there is no relationship between them.

The institutions that form the Health Department advise that the epidemiological alert continues and is looking specifically for cases, reinforcement of school screenings, as well the contingency of prepared hospitals that are to care for serious cases as has been outlined in the contingency plan. The public coordination of new cases is vital therefore and again in case of the onset of these symptoms: intense and constant headache, fever above 101.3 F (38.5 C.) or higher, cold with cough, with or without difficulty breathing GO IMMEDIATELY TO A DOCTOR OR A NEARBY HEALTH CENTER to initiate the anti-viral treatment; the health centers have the personnel and the medications needed to treat this virus but it is very necessary that the population access services to diagnose and receive treatment.

It is important to remind the population that there are things that always need to be done to avoid the transmission of infection:


AT THIS TIME:

There are personnel and hospitals to take care of serious cases.

There is sufficient medication available..

H1N1 has been established as an epidemiological alert and the behavior of the disease is being monitored to limit the spread.

Medical personnel have been trained and updated to handle all cases.

It is important that if you have symptoms, go to the health system and then go back to the same place for timely monitoring. END.
