Hurricanes are rated according their intensity and a hurricane of category 3 are considered “destructive”.

Weather forecasters expected the center of Hurricane Jimena to move parallel to the west coast of Mexico. It was moving northwest at around 12 mph (19 kph).

According to the advisory released by the center, Hurricane Jimena could easily become a category 4 hurricane in the next day or so. There is a threat to those living near southern Baja California.
