Hurricane Kay hit the Baja Peninsula on Thursday September 9th. It caused extensive damage down much of the Peninsula and has affected the local community of San Juanico and the surrounding areas. Everyone is safe, however there was a lot of material damage done.
We are reaching out to our community who has continued to support San Juanico and asking for a simple donation to help with the recent damage created
by Hurricane Kay.
Donations will be used to supply the community with the necessary materials to clean the town, buy food and personal hygiene items for the ranchers and their families who rely on access to San Juanico. More information is provided below.
Any amount is greatly appreciated!
The Scorpion Bay Hotel team and the community of San Juanico have planned to carry out a campaign to clean up the beach and the affected areas in the town. With that said, they are in need of various cleaning tools and equipment such as: garbage bags, rakes, shovels, axes, hoes and talaches. As well as gasoline to transport garbage to the municipal dump. The pueblo has already started the process of cleaning the local school, but are still in need of help to clean the entirety of the town and this will be a large task.
Various members of our staff reported that there are 27 ranches that belong to the San Juanico delegation who have been left incommunicado due to the flooding of streams. Your donations will support these families and allow them to buy food, items of personal hygiene and neccessary items to help repair their ranch.
The names of the family ranches are the following:
Los Crestones , Los Juanitos, El Abanico, Rancho Nuevo, La Higuerita, Agua Sarca, El Cardón, La Yaqui, La Venda, San Agustín, El Mezquite, Los Huisapoles, Casa Viejas, La Vinorama, El Tule, Los Panales, Los Girasoles, El Aguajito1, El Cantil
La Ballena, El Sausito, El Quemado, El Rialengo, El Aguajito 2, Los Tepetates
La Mesita Alta, Rancho Panchulin.

The locals of san Juanico are strong and always come together to help each other out, as most of us have experienced while traveling through Baja.
They will get through this tough time, but would be so thankful for your support.
