Hurricane Olaf stalls after hitting Mexico’s Los Cabos as Cat 2 storm


CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico – Hurricane Olaf slipped back to tropical storm force on Friday after slamming into the Los Cabos resorts at the tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula and then drenching the region with torrential rains. The storm came ashore near San Jose del Cabo late Thursday as a Category 2 hurricane with winds of 100 mph, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. But winds had dropped to 70 mph in the morning, when it was centered about 65 miles west of La Paz.
