Rick Huffs and Puffs

Chuck Naslund managed to snap a very illustrative shot of Tropical Storm Rick has he roared into Mazatlan. "The shot was taken from the companionway of my La Habra-based Catalina 30, Saber Vivir, around 8:30 Wednesday morning," reports Chuck. "I’m on the outer dock ‘A’ at Isla Marina, looking at Marina Mazatlan’s dock ’10’."

Chuck says unofficial reports of gusts over 70 mph at El Cid Marina were filtering in over the radio. "It definitely felt like we were getting them at Isla, too," he said. "So far I haven’t heard any reports of major damage, but I know there was a lot of torn canvas and shredded tarps."

If you know of more Rick damage in Mazatlan — or anywhere in Mexico — let us know.
