AP PHOTOS: Hurricane Odile's devastation in Mexico

The Associated Press

LOS CABOS, Mexico (AP) A highway bridge dangles into a raging river. The collapsed roof of an auto dealership lies on a half dozen cars. Inside a looted Wal-Mart superstore, there's nothing but puddles, trash and empty shelves.

Images of the aftermath of Hurricane Odile's landfall show devastation and desperation in Mexico's Baja California Peninsula, where tens of thousands of people endured a fourth day without electricity or running water Thursday.

Homes, businesses and luxury hotels all sustained severe damage. There has been extensive looting, and police are now vowing to crack down to restore the rule of law.

Many people are struggling to take care of basic needs, waiting in long lines to fill jugs with gasoline and water.

Thousands of weary tourists, for whom a dream vacation turned into a nightmare, are crowding airports hoping to get on a flight out.
