Tropical Storm Katia forms in Gulf of Mexico

07 September 2017

Katia is now swirling, along with Hurricanes Irma and Jose.

On Wednesday, Katia and Jose upgraded to hurricane status, joining Irma, a Category 5 storm with 185-mph winds.

Tropical Storms Jose and Katia are both now hurricanes. Worldwide agencies predicted that Jose could follow a path similar to that of Irma, the Category 5 hurricane, with sustained winds of 295 kph that is today hitting the Lesser Antilles. Katia was moving slowly toward the east-southeast near 5 miles per hour (7 kph), and little motion is expected during the next day or so.

It said a hurricane watch was in effect for the coast of the Mexican state of Veracruz where heavy rainfall could be expected.

Katia is expected to stay offshore through Friday morning. In isolated parts of northern Veracruz, up to 15 inches of rain are possible.

The CMI said that tropical storm Jose was located about 2,000 km east of the southern group of the Lesser Antilles. The storm was located about 1200 east of the Lesser Antilles and was moving west-northwest at 17 miles per hour.

Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm with sustained winds of 185 miles per hour, is expected to pass north of Puerto Rico Thursday morning, through the Bahamas on Friday and into South Florida on Sunday.
