Tropical Storm Jose has formed, threatening to follow Irma’s wake

Jose, the tenth tropical storm of the year in the Atlantic basin, formed today in open waters of the Atlantic and could turn into a hurricane on Friday and follow the wake of powerful hurricane Irma, the US National Hurricane Center (CNH) reported. UU.

José is located about 1,505 miles (2,420 kilometers) east of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean, moves west-northwest at a speed of 12 miles per hour (20 km / h) and presents sustained maximum winds of 13 miles per hour (65 km / h).

It is expected to maintain this trajectory west-northwest or west with some speed increase in the next 48 hours, said the NHC.

In this way, Jose could follow a course similar to that done by Irma, category 5 hurricane, with sustained winds of 185 miles per hour (285 kilometers per hour) and gusts of up to 220 (350), which could ravage the Lesser Antilles in the next few hours.

Forecasters expect “further strengthening” of Jose in the next 48 hours.

The first tropical storm of 2017 was Arlene, which formed last April in the mid-Atlantic, more than a month before the start of the season.

This was followed by Bret, Cindy, Don, Emily and Franklin, who became the first hurricane of the season, then Gert, the second hurricane, Harvey, who reached category 4, Irma, now category 5, and Storm Joseph .
