Space station captures Hurricanes Irma, Jose churning in the Atlantic

Space station captures Hurricanes Irma, Jose churning in the Atlantic

The hurricane was moving at 18 miles per hour and was measured to have maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour.

Now, Irma is hammering a string of northeast Caribbean islands and making its way toward a possible hit on Florida over the weekend.

At 11 a.m., Tropical Storm Jose formed in the Atlantic.

Three hurricanes are now churning in the Atlantic Ocean, and they're all moving west.

"Atlantic now has 3 Cat".

Predictions: April 6, 2017 - The Tropical Meteorology Project from Colorado State University predicts that the "2017 Atlantic basin hurricane season will have slightly below-average activity".

Hurricane Irma has been pummeling its way through on path to the US this week, with Hurricane Jose following closely behind. This is the first time on record three straight storms have attained Category 4 or higher status, according to Klotzbach.

At least 17 people were killed as Irma, with winds of 150 miles per hour, laid waste to a series of tiny islands like St Martin on its way towards the state of Florida. The storm is moving northwest at 16 miles per hour. Jose is to move farther from these islands into the northern Atlantic. But it's too close to call.

"This one doesn't pose as much of a threat to the direct southeastern United States as Irma does", said Weather Channel meteorologist Ari Sarsalari.

Beyond the Leeward Islands, Jose will likely get caught up in a lack of steering flow, causing the hurricane to decrease its speed. The areas covered include the North Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. The center of Katia is expected to remain off the shore of Mexico through Friday morning. The government has extended the Hurricane Watch northward along the coast to Cabo Rojo. The center said Katia was expected to dissipate over the course of Saturday.

The rains may cause flash floods and mudslides, especially in mountainous areas, the NHC said.

Hurricane Jose in the open Atlantic, some 1,000 miles (1,610 km) east of the Caribbean's Lesser Antilles islands, could become a Category 3 and eventually threaten the USA mainland.

It is quite rare to have three simultaneous hurricanes.
