Hurricane Hilary Threatens Catastrophic and Life-Threatening Flooding

From an AP story by Ignacio Martinez and Julie Watson headlined “Hurricane Hilary threatens ‘catastrophic and life-threatening’ flooding in Mexico and California”:

Hurricane Hilary headed for Mexico’s Baja California Saturday as the U.S, National Hurricane Center predicted “catastrophic and life-threatening flooding” for the peninsula and for the southwestern United States, where it is forecast to make land as a tropical storm on Sunday.

Officials as far north as Los Angeles scrambled to get the homeless off the streets, set up shelters and prepare for evacuations.
