Finally got through to Paul J originally from Oregon. As Daniel said, he rode it out at his new house on the beach. Crazy guy (but I probably would have done the same). He's fine and has enough food and water to last a week or so. The damage was mostly on the beach side of his property but a lot of water and sand went through his lower floor. Upstairs is fine. Sea wall is gone, damage to palapa and lots of clean up to do. Road is unpassable by vehicle but the footbridge to town is usable.
Other places along the beach did not fare so well, especially trailers/motorhomes. Low lying houses have flooded.
