Forecasters: Jose, Katia now hurricanes

As of 5 p.m. this afternoon, Jose was moving west at 16 miles per hour, and the National Hurricane Center expects that motion to continue over the next two days.

On Sept. 7, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said a Hurricane Warning is in effect for Cabo Rojo to Laguna Verde, and a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect from north of Cabo Rojo to Rio Panuco and south of Laguna Verde to Puerto Veracruz.

Jose formed Tuesday in the central Atlantic, more than 1,000 miles east of Hurricane Irma, and so far is following Irma's path westward toward the Caribbean.

With the three hurricanes on the map simultaneously, all eyes are on Irma, which is expected to bring a 20-foot storm surge and 20 inches of rain.

At 10 a.m. CDT (11 a.m. EDT/1500 UTC) the center of Hurricane Katia was located near 21.6 degrees north latitude and 94.6 degrees west longitude.

We now have three separate hurricanes in the Atlantic basin - Jose and Katia, along with Irma, as Category 1 hurricanes.

Jose has winds of 75 miles per hour (120 kph) and is quickly strengthening, but poses no immediate threat to land. This system formed in the western Gulf of Mexico from a lingering disturbance earlier this week. Hurricane Irma is a Category 5 hurricane, and was approaching Grand Turk island early Thursday evening.

While Jose is not expected to make landfall, it's quite possible it could add to the misery on Barbuda, which was devastated by Irma.

As for the three storms now occupying the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico, all three are expected to take very different paths.

The exact track of Jose is still somewhat in question, and there is a chance it could escape to the east of the already battered islands.
