Hurricane Marie Threatens Some Caribbean Islands Hit by Irma

Jose Restrengthens To Hurricane Status; Heads Toward US East Coast

The disturbance is forecast to become a tropical storm later today and could be near hurricane strength when it approaches the Leeward Islands.

It poses a significant threat to areas already hit hard by Hurricane Irma, like the Lesser Antilles, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, where hurricane watches have once again been issued, according to The Weather Channel.

As of 1:30 p.m. on Monday Jose was a category 1 hurricane with more than 500 miles south of Nantucket with sustained winds of about 75 mph.

People who live along the U.S. East Coast from North Carolina up to New England should monitor Hurricane Jose, forecasters say. These islands saw devastation during hurricane Irma. According to Moss, there could be some scattered bands of rain along the coast as well, along with winds that could gust to between 35 and 50 miles per hour later Monday into early Tuesday over the sounds and Outer Banks.

Jose is expected to pass close to Long Island on Tuesday and into Wednesday, but it's not now expected to make landfall.

From there it may move towards Puerto Rico or Hispaniola as a hurricane or even potentially as a major hurricane.

"This storm promises to be catastrophic for our island", he said.

Vincent and the Grenadines are under tropical storm watches while Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis and Montserrat are under hurricane watches. Maria was about 145 km north-northeast of Barbados and about 270 km east-southeast of Dominica, the US-based National Hurricane Center said.

The forecast track for Jose has it running parallel to the coastline, passing SC by Monday and continuing northeast back out toward the Atlantic past Maine. Tropical storm watches were in effect on the coast of Long Island, N.Y., from Fire Island Inlet to Port Jefferson.

Tropical Depression Fifteen became Tropical Storm Maria late Saturday afternoon. Its hurricane force winds reach out 60 miles from its center, and tropical storm force winds (39 mph and higher) extend outward 205 miles.
