Jose strengthens into hurricane in Atlantic Ocean

Tropical Storm Jose forms over open Atlantic

The storm was expected to weaken rapidly over the next day, the NHC said. Two hours later, the space station flew over Irma, a physically massive and potentially catastrophic Category 4 storm that has prompted watches and warnings on both Florida coasts and evacuations for more than 1.4 million residents along the southeastern seaboard.

Tropical storms Jose and Katia strengthened Wednesday afternoon, bringing the number of hurricanes churning in the Atlantic basin to three.

The closest land mass Jose will approach is the northern Leeward Islands, the same ones Irma just devastated.

NTSB: Tesla's Autopilot UX a "major role" in fatal Model S crash
"Tesla allowed the driver to use the system outside the environment for which it was designed", said NTSB chair Robert Sumwalt. The NTSB recommended that automakers monitor driver attention in ways other than through detecting steering-wheel engagement.

Katia formed in the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday, as the powerful Hurricane Irma moved on its destructive path through the Caribbean with Hurricane Jose not far behind.

Katia made landfall as a hurricane late Friday (Sept. 8) north of Tecolutla, the National Hurricane Center said. It's the 10th tropical storm of the season with maximum sustained winds of 60mph.

After passing the Leewards, Hurricane Jose is forecast to eventually move further north, away from the USA, though some computer models project a meandering path that bears close watching next week. Instead, it's expected to curve up into the open Atlantic and become a major hurricane - Category 3 or more - with winds up to 115 miles per hour.
