(Newser) – Hurricane Jimena, nearly strong enough to be classified as the most serious category of storm, could hit the resort-heavy southern tip of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula by tomorrow evening, the Los Angeles Times reports. Jimena’s winds are at 155mph, at the top end of Category 4. An international economics conference set for tomorrow and Wednesday in Los Cabos was moved to Mexico City.
