Hurricane Katia likely to intensify by landfall in Mexico: NHC

Tropical Storm Jose Becomes the 10th Named Storm of the Hurricane Season

Jose was about 660 miles (1,060 km) east of the Lesser Antilles with maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour (165 km/h), the NHC said.

Tropical Storm Jose has formed over the open Atlantic - the 10th tropical storm for the season, says the US National Hurricane Center (NHC).

The category one storm is now building in intensity in the north Atlantic, around 900 miles east of the Lesser Antilles where the island of Barbuda saw catastrophic damage on Wednesday. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 miles per hour (120 km/h) with higher gusts. The National Hurricane Center has not issued any coastal watches or warnings.

All eyes are on Hurricane Irma as it moves toward Florida, but it's not alone.

Tropical Storm Jose continues to strengthen gradually and is now expected to become a hurricane by Wednesday night.

Irma's core slammed Barbuda early Wednesday before moving over St. Martin and Anguilla and parts of the British Virgin Islands.

As of the midday Wednesday advisory, Tropical Storm Jose has sustained winds of 70 miles per hour.

Mushfiqur Rahim and Sabbir Rahman had shared a century stand on the first day to steady the Bangladesh innings. The recalled Hilton Cartwright earlier made it to 18 before being dismissed with the final ball before tea.

The NHC said the storm should strengthen further and would probably start drifting towards the southwest before it is forecast to hit the state of Veracruz by early Saturday. Interests in the Leeward Islands have been advised to monitor the progress of Hurricane Jose.

As for the three storms now occupying the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico, all three are expected to take very different paths.

The Atlantic basin has three active hurricanes for the first time in seven years.

"Jose's a couple of days away and the track may change, but it's forecast to come close to those islands over the weekend".

- Floridians should heed any evacuation order, Gov. Rick Scott said Wednesday. The western quadrant of the storm was over the east coast state of Veracruz, Mexico.

Hurricane Jose forms in the Atlantic, far from land and well east of the powerful Hurricane Irma.
