Battered Cabo picks up pieces from Hurricane Odile

CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico (AP) - The Mexican government prepared to begin airlifting tens of thousands of stranded tourists out of the hurricane-ravaged resort area of Los Cabos on Tuesday, as residents picked up the pieces of shattered, flooded homes.

The Interior Ministry said military and commercial planes would be sent to ferry travelers out through the airports of La Paz and Los Cabos, the latter of which remained closed to commercial flights due to damage from Hurricane Odile when it tore through the area late Sunday and Monday.
