Hurricane bears down on quake-rattled Mexico

Hurricane bears down on quake-rattled Mexico”

On Sept. 8, the National Hurricane Center posted a Hurricane Watch for Antigua, Barbuda, and Anguilla, Saint Maarten, St. Martin and St. Barthelemy.

The National Hurricane Center said the storm, located east of the Lesser Antilles, was packing winds of 120 miles per hour (195 kilometers per hour), as it moved northwest at almost 18 miles per hour (30 kilometers per hour). The image showed a symmetrical storm with powerful bands of thunderstorms around a clear eye.

Unlike Harvey, which moved north into Texas, Katia is expected to move into Mexico; the storm could be a Category 3 by the time it makes landfall.

Hurricane Jose continued to gather strength far out in the Atlantic and was nearing Category 5 strength as it churned about 435 miles east-southeast of the Northern Leeward Islands.

NHC noted that risky storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 5 to 7 feet above normal tide levels near and to the north of where Katia makes landfall. The storm is considered a "small tropical cyclone", with winds around 129km/h and an expected 13 to 25cm of rain. NOAA is warning that storm surges could get as high as 5.5 to 7m, both in Florida and along the Georgia coast. Isolated maximum amounts of 8 inches are possible.

Katia could bring life-threatening flash floods to areas in the mountains just to the west. The latest two cyclones, Jose and Katia, are now the 10th and 11th storms to be named in the Atlantic in 2017, and there are still eight tortuous weeks left in the official hurricane season.

Irma was downgraded Monday morning to a tropical storm, though it continues to sustain near hurricane force winds of up to 65 miles per hour.

Jose is expected to be a major hurricane by Friday.

Jose's maximum sustained winds are near 85 miles per hour with stronger gusts.

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station have a rare seat to view some of the earth's most awe-inspiring sights and some of the most devastating natural disasters that have occurred - that includes Hurricane Irma.
