How to track Hurricane Jose and Hurricane Katia in real time

Katia spins in the Gulf of Mexico and will strengthen and Hurricane Jose is behind Irma about 1,060 kilometres east of the Lesser Antilles. Antigua has issued a hurricane watch for the islands of Antigua and Barbuda.

And Hurricane Katia will likely make landfall on Saturday in Mexico, USA Today reported.

Irma generated more Accumulated Cyclone Energy than the first eight named storms of the current Atlantic hurricane season combined.

Travel to and from St. Martin and St. Bart was halted on Saturday with Jose closing in, while hurricane warnings put in place for Barbuda and Anguilla.

Hurricane Irma, which was ranked at the maximum Category 5, is the most powerful storm ever recorded in the Atlantic.

Two days of satellite imagery from NASA's Terra and NOAA's GOES East satellites showed that Hurricane Katia was starting to crawl to the coast of southeastern Mexico.

Katia had maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour and a hurricane warning is in effect for the state of Veracruz from Cabo Rojo to Laguna Verde. A tropical storm watch was in effect for the area between Cabo Rojo and the Panuco River and for the area between Laguna Verde and Puerto Veracruz.

The storm, packing peak winds of 80 miles per hour, is forecast to track westward toward Mexico and make landfall as a hurricane on Friday night in the state of Veracruz. The storm weakened as it moved west, and its remnants are now located near Hidalgo.

However, the Category 4 hurricane spared the storm-hit Caribbean islands, which had already suffered at the hands of Irma. "This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides, especially in areas of mountainous terrain".

At 7 a.m. CDT (8 a.m. EDT/1200 UTC) on September 8 the center of Hurricane Katia was located near 21.1 degrees north latitude and 95.6 degrees west longitude.
