Hurricane Katia strengthens to Category 2

Hurricane Katia strengthens to Category 2”

And finally, Tropical Storm Katia formed in the Gulf of Mexico this morning.

However, Jose is coming behind Hurricane Irma, a unsafe Category 5 hurricane that the National Hurricane Center is calling "potentially catastrophic".

Like Irma, Jose is a Cape Verde hurricane, a type of storm that forms in the far eastern Atlantic, near the Cape Verde Islands (now known as Cabo Verde). The latter has left a trail of destruction across several Caribbean islands and is now heading for Florida, U.S.

Next up is Tropical Storm Jose, which is now in the Atlantic some 1,135 miles (1,825 kilometers) east of the Lesser Antilles and roaring towards the Caribbean.

Hurricane Katia strengthens to Category 2

Katia was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm as it was about 110 miles (175km) northwest of Veracruz, Mexico with sustained winds of 45 mph (70kmh), the centre said in an advisory. Three simultaneous hurricanes in the Atlantic basin may seem extreme, but it happens about once every ten years.

As for the three storms now occupying the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico, all three are expected to take very different paths. It's still unclear how Irma will affect the United States, though Florida is bracing for a possible hit.

Hurricane Katia made landfall Friday near the working-class beach resort of Tecolutla in the state of Veracruz on the Mexican Gulf coast, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

All three of these storms are a sign it's peak hurricane season. Named by Time.com one of the best weather apps for your iPhone.
