Online news story with 2 more pictures. Click on fotogaleria(2) It's hard to imagine your car submerged in water like this, but this was the scene in several parts of the city yesterday. It's still raining with a slight breeze, and is cool for this time of year. Let the clean-up begin. Adios Lane!

I saw some incredible video from Mazatlan on TV here last night. It looked pretty bad, hope the clean up goes well and that there is little damage to you and yours.

Hi Jonna! Some areas were hit worse than others. Let's just say that recent home-buyers are now aware if their roof or windows leak or if their streets flood. There was a good system in place for evacuation, but the problem was that people were afraid of thefts and didn't want to leave their homes. About 300 people are in the Lions Club building and today as we passed it sounded like a nice party was taking place to cheer them up. (read: loud obnoxious banda music!) Lopez Mateos has some nice houses underwater, but they are used to moving furniture to the 2nd story every time there is a storm! Everything seems to be working out and blue skies are visible now.

You're lucky to be in Mexico. My observation is that people take care of their own stuff and then go and look out for the neighbors as well. Glad they are partying at the shelter, it wouldn't be Sinaloa without the Banda music! It's not my fav but it does mean Sinaloa. How did Culiacan fare? Perhaps Jesus Malverde took care of them?

The highways between Mazatlan and Culiacan are in rough shape in spots and not sure if they are open yet. Parts of Culiacan fared better than others, similar to Mazatlan.

P.S. You're right. Banda stops for nothing in Sinaloa, not even a hurricane!
