Jimena Loses Strength, Expected to Get Even Weaker

There’s good news to report out of Mexico. Although the country isn’t exactly out of the woods just yet, CNN is reporting that Jimena dipped from a Category 4 to a Category 2 hurricane early Wednesday. The hurricane's maximum wind speed dropped from about 145 mph to 105 mph and the National Hurricane Center said it expects more weakening before landfall.
