Tropical storms Jose, Katia become Category 1 hurricanes

Tropical Storm Jose Becomes the 10th Named Storm of the Hurricane Season

Jose is trailing due east of Irma, out in the open Atlantic for now and likely following a similar path before veering northward of the Leeward Islands as a Category 3 by Sunday. The storm might become a hurricane as it approaches the coast of Veracruz, Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said Wednesday. Hurricane Jose is a Category 1 storm with maximum sustained wind gusts near 85 miles per hour.

Hurricane Katia has just formed in the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico in the Bay of Campeche.

Katia is anticipated to pass over Mexico, dumping heavy rain over the states of Veracruz, Tamaulipas and Puebla.

As of 2100 UTC today (September 6), Irma was about 40 miles northwest of St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, and about 55 miles east-northeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

- Hurricane Irma's power aside, it's been a while since the Atlantic has been this active. So far this year, there have been six hurricanes: two major ones, Harvey and Irma; two new ones yesterday, Katia and Jose; and Franklin and Gert.

Buildings were flattened, roads were flooded and people were left trapped following the "monster" storm that hit the island of Antigua, Barbua, St Barts and St Martin, sending debris flying everywhere. The islands of Antigua and Barbuda are offline nearly entirely. It said winds would likely fluctuate slightly, but the storm would remain at Category 4 or 5 strength for the next day or two.

- In Broward County, Florida, a mandatory evacuation will go into effect at noon Thursday for areas east of Federal Highway, Mayor Barbara Sharief said.

On the 5-level intensity scale, Category 2 tropical storms carry winds of 154-177 km/h (96-110 mph), strong enough to cause life-threatened damage.

Weather forecasters have said the hurricane has sustained maximum winds of up to 120 miles per hour.

Katia is forecast to turn southeastward in the next 24 hours and will move in that direction before turning southwest on Friday, according to the NHC.
