Three Hurricanes at once: Irma, Jose and Katia

Three Hurricanes at once: Irma, Jose and Katia”

The hurricane, which formed as a tropical storm on Wednesday, was intensifying in the eastern Atlantic, following behind Irma on a similar path.

Jose is located to the east of Hurricane Irma, which is a powerful and unsafe storm heading toward Antigua and perhaps the U.S.

There is no doubt that Hurricane Irma remains the biggest threat of the three named storms; there is a possibility that Jose may not make landfall, while Katia remains relatively localized.

Tropical Depression Thirteen is not expected to move much over the next few days.

Jose has strengthened into a hurricane, according to the National Hurricane Center on Wednesday.

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

Trump, Haley Seek to Break Nuclear Accord With Tehran - Iranian-American Group
Numerous other high-ranking Iranian officials have also come out in support of the deal and against US accusations in recent days. In addition to the nuclear treaty dispute, the USA accuses Iran of destabilizing the Middle East and funding terrorism overseas .

Evacuating such an area ahead of time is a tricky task, given the shape of the Florida peninsula means the whole state is potentially in the path of Irma. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles (20 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km).

In late August and early September of 1995, the Atlantic was home to five different tropical systems at one point - Humberto, Iris, Jerry and tropical waves that later formed into Karen and Luis. "Where Jose is concerned, the islands of the Lesser Antilles will be impacted by rough swells, particularly along the north and east coasts", Baig said.

Formation chance through 48 hours: 60 percent.

The hurricane center said Tuesday Jose could become a hurricane by Friday. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour (65 kph) with higher gusts. The event's time and location are to be announced, the page says, depending upon where the storm makes land on the continental U.S.

People on the Leeward Islands should monitor this storm. In Barbuda, an island east of Puerto Rico, winds ripped off the roof of a police station, forcing officers to take shelter in a nearby fire station, The Associated Press reported on Wednesday.

Florida is now preparing for the possibility of Irma.
