2 dead, damage in Mexico after Hurricane Katia strikes

2 dead, damage in Mexico after Hurricane Katia strikes”

The National Hurricane Center has not issued any coastal watches or warnings, but Jose appears to be following Hurricane Irma's lead.

It was upgraded to a Category 1 hurricane late on Wednesday and on Thursday morning the centre was around 200 miles east of the port of Tampico.

The National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Jose, which formed in the Atlantic on Tuesday, is expected to become a hurricane on Wednesday.

Katia weakened rapidly after hitting the land on Friday night, although Veracruz Governor Miguel Angel Yunes said the storm had left some 70,000 people without electricity and caused damage in 53 of the Gulf state's 212 municipalities. Its maximum sustained winds of 185 miles per hour were well above the 157 miles per hour threshold of a Category 5 storm. It then was downgraded to a tropical storm and forecasters expect it to dissipate Saturday.

As these islands attempt to recover from Irma, CNN reported that at least two are now under a new hurricane watch as Jose approaches.

The NHC said the storm should strengthen further and would probably start drifting towards the southwest before it is forecast to hit the state of Veracruz by early Saturday.

A hurricane watch indicates the possibility that a region could experience hurricane conditions within 48 hours.

Hurricane Irma is believed to be the most powerful Atlantic storm in a decade, but its predecessors in both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean have also caused their share of death and destruction.

Tropical-storm-force winds are present up to 45 miles out from the center of the storm, authorities said. It is the 11th named storm of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season. Those in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of Jose, in addition to Irma, closely, advised Weather.com.

Hurricane Jose is similar to Irma in that it's a Cape Verde hurricane, forming in the far eastern Atlantic, CNN is reporting.

The size of Jose kept the worst impacts largely away from the northern Leeward Islands, which are the same islands that were devastated by Category 5 Hurricane Irma just days ago.
