A hurricane is brewing in the Pacific. The Associated Press reports that Mexican authorities have set up shelters in resort-studded Baja California as Hurricane Jimena, a dangerous Category 4 storm with 145 mph maximum winds, approached. The southern part of Baja is under a hurricane watch, which means the storm could hit within 36 hours. At least 10,000 families from the resort town of Cabo San Lucas will be evacuated from possible flood zones, according to the director of civil protection, who also said 60 shelters would be set up. The storm could disrupt a meeting of economists sponsored by the Paris-based Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development on Tuesday and Wednesday at the southern tip of the peninsula.
