Hurricane Katia forms in Gulf off Mexico's coast

Hurricane Katia forms in Gulf off Mexico's coast”

The tropical storm was named on Tuesday and became a Category 1 hurricane on Wednesday afternoon when its maximum sustained winds hit 75 miles per hour.

Jose is similar to Irma in the sense that it's 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). Hurricane Jose is forecast to turn north and move across the southern Atlantic and not affect the US.

It had maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour as of the 11 p.m. advisory.

The storm is expected to make landfall in Mexico's southeast coast late Friday or early Saturday.

The storm is forecast to produce up to 10 inches of rain, with the possibility of 15 inches in northern Veracruz, according to the National Hurricane Center.

However, Jose is coming behind Hurricane Irma, a unsafe Category 5 hurricane that the National Hurricane Center is calling "potentially catastrophic". A slightly faster west to west-northwest motion is expected during the next two days.

The NHC says the storm could become a major hurricane.

Katia has "worrying characteristics" because it is very slow-moving and could dump a lot of rain on areas that have been saturated in recent weeks, Luis Felipe Puente, head of Mexico's national emergency services, told domestic television.
