TS Katia becomes 3rd named storm now in Atlantic

TS Katia becomes 3rd named storm now in Atlantic

Another huge storm is gathering force, ready to follow the most powerful Atlantic hurricane in recorded history.

Additional strengthening is forecast, and Jose could be near major hurricane (wind speed greater than 110 mph) strength on Friday. It has maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) and is about 1505 miles (2420 kilometers) east of the Lesser Antilles.

NOAA said Hurricane Jose is expected to decrease slightly in forward speed in the next couple of days but is expected to strengthen in wind speed in the next two days. However, interests in the Leeward Islands should monitor the future progress of Jose.

The National Hurricane Center forecasts Katia to move in a southwesterly direction and make landfall late on Friday, Sept. 8.

The US National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Jose is gaining strength in the central tropical Atlantic. It is the 11th named storm of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season.

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. Katia started as a tropical depression (with maximum sustained winds below 39 mph) and strengthened into a tropical storm today.

'Star Wars' and Marvel Movies Will Headline Disney's Streaming Service
There is also a chance that worldwide versions of the service will launch before the US launch due to streaming rights clearances. At the time, many thought that meant only Disney and Pixar features, with Marvel and Star Wars continuing to stream at Netflix .

Mnuchin: Debt limit should be tied to Harvey funding
So, we need to put politics aside and we're going to be urging Congress to get both of those things done as quickly as they can. Mnuchin's spending-debt ceiling pitch resulted in a quick and favorable response from Congress's top two Democratic leaders.

Gas prices on the rise in Saskatchewan due to Hurricane Harvey
Hurricane Harvey has wreaked havoc in Texas along the Gulf Coast, causing oil refineries to pre-emptively shut down production. A gas shortage in the USA could spill over into Canada, McTeague told Global News .

Jose, like Katia, is a Category 1 hurricane with 75 miles per hour winds.

There is a reason September is known as the heart of hurricane season. A hurricane warning remains in effect for the BVI. The hurricane decimated the Caribbean island of Barbuda and was pummeling Puerto Rico Wednesday night.

If the storm tracks over the beleaguered islands of the northern Lesser Antilles, they could face destructive winds for the second time in four days and up to 10 inches of rainfall.

Just as Jose was upgraded to a hurricane Wednesday afternoon, so was Katia.

"The system will likely end up moving inland over the northern coast of southeastern Mexico sometime late this week or this weekend", said AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski. Meanwhile, residents of Florida hurriedly prepared themselves for a potential direct hit on Miami.
