Tropical storm Katia kills two in east Mexico

Hurricane Katia slams into Mexico's Veracruz state

The western quadrant of the storm was over the east coast state of Veracruz, Mexico. Some additional strengthening is forecast during the next day or so and Katia could be near major hurricane strength at landfall.

It has been hurtling through the Caribbean been moving with sustained winds of close to 150mph - here's the latest on the hurricane.

Katia was about 201 km west northwest of the port of Veracruz by mid-morning on Saturday, the NHC said, noting that the threat of heavy rainfall continued.

The space agency's own Kennedy Space Center is predicted to be among the many structures in Irma's path, which the US National Hurricane Center said was now moving over the Camaguey Archipelago of Cuba as a Category 5 hurricane. People in coastal parts of Florida and the Keys are evacuating in preparation. The estimated minimum central pressure is 977 millibars.

In 2010, three hurricanes - Igor, Julia, and Karl - were all active in the Atlantic basin at the same time.

Jose is the 10th Atlantic storm named so far this year, following on from Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

It is common for major storms to hit back to back, but to have more than one hit the USA in one hurricane season is rare, according to CBS. According to Wunderground, ACE is "used to express the activity and destructive potential of individual tropical cyclones and entire tropical cyclone seasons".

Friday broke that nearly 56-year-old power record by more than 12%.

Irma is the strongest hurricane the Leeward Islands have ever seen.


Will Hurricane Katia hit Texas? Jose will not make the same land impact as Irma, though its rains could worsen any ongoing flooding on islands already hit.
