En todo el estado de Baja California Sur hay habilitados 159 albergues temporales con capacidad para albergar 29.000 personas.
En el último boletín del Servicio Meteorológico Nacional (SMN) mexicano señalaba que a las 05:00 hora local (10:00 GMT) el huracán “Jimena” se encontraba a 295 kilómetros al sur de Cabo San Lucas y 185 kilómetros al norte-noroeste de Isla Socorro, en el estado de Colima. El fenómeno se desplaza a 19 kilómetros por hora rumbo norte-noroeste, con vientos sostenidos de 250 kilómetros por hora y rachas de hasta 305 kilómetros.
Durante la madrugada, Díaz, señaló que las unidades de Protección Civil de los cinco ayuntamientos de Baja California Sur desplegaron medidas de prevención en algunos casos como en Los Cabos en medio de una tupida lluvia. El secretario de Gobierno destacó que es la primera vez que Baja California Sur recibe a un huracán de categoría cuatro, y se prevé que en mañana el ojo del huracán podría estar tocando tierra en algún punto del municipio de Comondú.
Desde ayer el Estado se encuentra en alerta “naranja” (alta peligrosidad), por otro lado se reportaron grados de alerta inferiores por lluvias, vieto y oleaje fuerte en otros estados de la costa del Pacífico mexicano, entre ellos los de Sinaloa, Nayarit, Colima y Jalisco.
