Hurricane Jose and Katia forms in the Atlantic Basin

Saffir-Simpson scale for hurricane classification

But meteorologists warn the storm's path could change.

At around 11 a.m. Wednesday, the hurricane center said the eye of the storm was about 140 miles east of San Juan.

Residents have been told to prepare for mass evacuations, with many areas having already ordered locals to leave.

Around 72,000 people live across the whole island, which has suffered property damage and power outages due to Irma.

All three of these storms are a sign it's peak hurricane season.

"Now we're looking like we're having two Category 4-5 storms in little over two weeks", Klotzbach said. The National Hurricane Center said the storm is expected to drift to the southwest tomorrow, and may strengthen. It is expected to stay on that course over the next couple of days and gradually strengthen. Conditions should allow it to remain an extremely powerful storm as it tracks in on the USA coastline, with evacuation beginning in the Florida Keys.

He later addressed the storm during an Oval Office meeting with Vice President Mike Pence and congressional leaders. I'm a good bro, too.

Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours and Jose could become a hurricane by Friday. And the stronger an Atlantic hurricane is, the more prone it is to curve to the right of motion due to the asymmetry that arises in the wind patterns.

Puerto Rico is an unincorporated United States territory, meaning its 3.35 million residents have U.S. citizenship but can not vote in federal elections. "A lot of infrastructure won't be able to withstand this kind of force". "How much wind remains to be seen".

The storm seemed nearly certain to hit the United States by early next week.

"We do not know the exact path of this storm", Florida Gov. Rick Scott said Tuesday.

The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Storm Jose as it was consolidating.

The announcement was made Wednesday afternoon when Jose's maximum winds hit 125 kilometers per hour (75 miles per hour).

Dropsonde observations - readings from instruments dropped into the storm by the hurricane hunter aircraft - indicated that the pressure rose a few millibars this morning, but the most recent aircraft report shows that the pressure has fallen to 914 millibars.
