And already in the afternoon tremendous rainfall.
Inundating the streets making them look like swimming pools.
Went to the only trailer park in La Paz.
Found a unique spot to weather the hurricane.
This will be the place for the next days.
As rainfall will be extreme, La Paz becomes a temporary swamp.
Moving will be impossible.
Many people were buying food and drinking water in La Paz.
Preparing to be locked up in their houses for days.
Meanwhile more warnings were made about this hurricane that is now upgraded to the highest category.
The National Hurricane Centre says:
Maximum sustained winds are near 155 mph...250 km/hr...with higher gusts. Jimena is a category four hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale...and very near the threshold of category five status. Some fluctuations in strength are likely during the next day or so...but Jimena is expected to remain a major hurricane until landfall. Jimena is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 5 to 10 inches over the southern half of the Baja California peninsula and portions of western Mexico during the next 2 days...with possible isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches. A dangerous storm surge along with battering waves will produce significant coastal flooding along the Baja California peninsula. PREPARATIONS TO PROTECT LIFE AND PROPERTY SHOULD BE RUSHED TO COMPLETION.
This is probably the last posting that can be made before the hurricane hits.
Thank you so much.
It has been wonderful.
Pray for us.
