Hurricane Jose Has Shifted Its Track

Hurricane Jose Has Shifted Its Track

The Air Force and Hurricane Hunters will be flying into Jose this evening for more detailed observation on the storm.

Hurricane Jose is projected to stay offshore, but has been creating high surf and risky rip currents along Space and Treasure Coast beaches for several days.

Only Jose, which was moving north at about 8 miles per hour on Sunday morning, is expected to impact North Carolina's coast, though its threat remains rather low.

NHC forecasters say Maria will likely intensify to a major Category 3 storm with sustained winds topping 125 miles per hour on Thursday, bringing unsafe wind, storm surge and rainfall hazards.

"We're in hurricane alley, so we've had other storms, but nothing like this", Jones said, referring to Irma, which was one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes ever recorded and which killed more than 80 people on Caribbean islands and the USA mainland.

There is also a tropical storm warning for Barbuda, where Irma destroyed 95 percent of the buildings on the island.

Farther north, long-lived Hurricane Jose continued to head northward off the U.S. East Coast, causing risky surf and rip currents.

Maria poses a significant threat to the Caribbean, the same areas that were impacted by Hurricane Irma a little over a week ago.

Two more tropical storms have formed in the Atlantic Ocean, with one expected to become a Category 1 hurricane before its expected impact in the Caribbean, CNN reported Saturday. It could also pack damaging winds with gusts up to 35 miles per hour. "Interests along the US east coast from Virginia to New England should monitor the progress of Jose through the next several days".

Hurricane Jose has weakened a little and now has 85 miles per hour winds.

Hurricane warnings have been issued for Guadeloupe, Dominica, St Kitts, Nevis, Montserrat and Martinique, AP reported.

National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Simpson said the category 1 storm is essentially guaranteed to create rip currents.
