Extremely dangerous and strengthening Hurricane Jimena is roaring toward Mexico's Baja California Peninsula today, prompting emergency workers to set up makeshift shelters and the evacuation of 20,000 people in the hurricanes path.
Jimena is just short of Category 5 status - the highest rating for a hurricane - and could rake the harsh desert region fringed with picturesque beaches and fishing villages as a major storm by tomorrow evening, forecasters said.
