Hurricane Odile was a hurricane (tropical cyclone) that happened in mid-September 2014. It made landfall in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. On September 15, 2014, Odile damaged several luxury resorts in Cabo San Lucas.[1] Parts of several hotels collapsed and about 135 people were injured.[1] Fifteen people were killed in the storm.[2][3] At the time of the damage it had wind speeds of 140 miles per hour.[1] Damage from Odile was 16.6 billion Mexican pesos[4] ($1.22 billion in 2014 US dollars).

The name Odile was later retired. It was replaced with Odalys for the 2020 Pacific hurricane season.[5]
