Three Hurricanes at once: Irma, Jose and Katia

  • Storm Katia rapidly weakens after making landfall in Mexico

Georgia officials have decided a one-way escape route for coastal residents fleeing Hurricane Irma isn't needed after all. An average hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30, and most of these storms form in the month of August. Over the last three days, Irma, Jose, and, to a lesser extent, Katia have been working overtime.

The United States National Hurricane Center said that as a tropical depression, Katia was blowing maximum sustained winds of 56 km per hour as it dissipated over the mountains of central eastern Mexico by mid-morning on Saturday. Farther out in the Atlantic, Hurricane Jose has nearly hit Category 5 strength, with tops winds of 155 miles per hour.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the storm's maximum sustained winds had dropped Saturday morning to about 35 miles per hour.

On Friday September 8 Hurricane Jose was 335 miles south east of the Northern Leeward Islands in the Caribbean and was moving in a north westerly direction. A tropical storm watch has also been issued for Anguilla, Montserrat, St. Kitts, Nevis, Saba, and St. Eustatius.

A separate composite image released by NASA on Friday shows hurricanes Jose, Irma and Katia in the Atlantic.


Hurricane Katia is expected to make landfall in Mexico.

As Katia was making landfall, Hurricane Irma, one of the most powerful Atlantic storms in a century, walloped Cuba's northern coast as a Category 5 storm.

The storm is expected to further weaken as it moves inland, and is expected to dissipate Saturday.

Will Hurricane Katia hit Texas?

Mexico will experience heavy rainfall and increased risk of flash floods and mudslides, especially in Veracruz and southern parts of the state of Tamaulipas.
