Jimena Prepares to Strike Baja California, Cabo San Lucas

CNN is reporting an "extremely dangerous" Hurricane Jimena bore down Tuesday on the Mexican peninsula of Baja California, with the resort town of Cabo San Lucas lying in its path. Jimena, which is now just short of Category 5 status with winds of near 155 mph, could hit Mexico's Baja California peninsula by Tuesday evening.

The government of Mexico extended a hurricane warning northward along the west coast of the Baja peninsula to Puerto San Andresito and east to the city of Loreto, the U.S. National Weather Service said in an advisory at 5 a.m. Tuesday. The hurricane warning means hurricane conditions are expected in the warning area within the next 24 hours, and forecasters predicted Jimena would strike Baja California by Tuesday evening.
