Hurricane Hilary to trigger floods in Baja California peninsula, southwestern US – NHC

Hurricane Hilary is approaching Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, with the potential for catastrophic and life-threatening flooding in the region and the U.S. Southwest. The hurricane has already caused disruptions to flights and baseball games in the United States. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has reported that the hurricane is weakening as it moves towards the west-central coast of the peninsula. It is expected to further weaken and become a tropical storm as it heads towards southern California. However, the NHC warns that dangerous rains are still a major concern, with up to 10 inches of rainfall expected in some areas of Baja California and California. Flash and urban flooding, particularly in the northern parts of the peninsula, are anticipated. Southern California and southern Nevada may also experience rainfall of 3 to 6 inches, with isolated amounts of 10 inches. The NHC emphasizes the expectation of dangerous to catastrophic flooding. U.S. President Joe Biden has been briefed on preparations for the hurricane and the work being done by state and local agencies. In response to the approaching storm, some school and non-essential activities have been canceled in Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, and residents in high-risk areas of Tijuana have been advised to move to temporary shelters. Hurricane Hilary is currently moving at a speed of 17 miles per hour, with maximum sustained winds of 110 mph. Heavy rains are already affecting parts of Baja California and the U.S. Southwest. U.S. authorities have issued warnings to citizens and businesses to take necessary precautions. The San Diego International Airport has canceled nearly 200 flights scheduled for Sunday and another 184 for Monday. Major League Baseball teams in Los Angeles have rescheduled their Sunday games to Saturday to avoid the impact of the storm. Additionally, the city’s soccer teams have postponed their Sunday matches due to the threat of heavy rains and flooding.
