Mexico: Death Toll from Hurricane Odile Climbs to 6

MEXICO CITY Mexican authorities found the body of a British citizen in the northwestern state of Baja California Sur, bringing the death toll from Hurricane Odile to six, police said Monday.

Diver Paul Whitehouse was found on El Mogote Island near La Paz, the state capital, the day after the body was recovered of his companion, Simone Wood, with whom he had gone to sea on a sailboat that was subsequently slammed by the hurricane.

The British couple set sail on Sept. 14, the same day that Odile first hit Baja California Sur with maximum winds of 240 kph (150 mph).

Besides the two Britons, the impact of Odile left two Korean mining executives and two state residents dead, according to official records.

Odile, which struck the resort area of Los Cabos as a Category 3 hurricane, caused significant damage to urban infrastructure, highways, powerlines, telecommunications and airports, as well as to hotels and homes.

As a result of the destruction caused by the hurricane, the Mexican government declared a natural disaster in five municipalities of Baja California Sur, in order to speed up delivery of federal resources to deal with the emergency.
