Storm Norma becomes hurricane in Pacific off Mexico

Hurricane Jose strengthens slightly 500 miles south of Bermuda: NHC

Although Hurricane Jose was moving slowly and far from land, the storm was generating powerful swells that were affecting coastal areas in Bermuda, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and the U.S. Southeast.

Tropical storm Lee is sitting several hundred miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands with sustained winds at 40 mph.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the depression's maximum sustained winds are near 35 miles per hour and it's forecast to strengthen to a tropical storm later in the day or on Saturday.

This Sept. 14, 2017 photo provided by Guillermo Houwer on Saturday, Sept. 16, shows storm damage to Maho Bay in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma on Virgin Gorda, in the British Virgin Islands.

Jose, formerly a Category 3 hurricane, is expected to produce rip currents and high-surf along portions of the US east coast.

Forecasters will be keeping a close eye on Tropical Storm Maria as it approaches these islands, many of which are still reeling after Irma's devastating impact.

After a week hovering around the Bermuda Triangle, Hurricane Jose is on the move, and may take a swipe at the NY area late Monday into early Tuesday.

Turkey says Iraqi Kurd vote 'illegitimate'
He said: "We want the referendum to be cancelled and support the motion not for war but for peace in the region". His remarks came after repeated calls from Turkey , U.S. and Iran to cancel the vote slated for September 25.

Maria is about 590 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and is packing maximum sustained winds of 50 mph.

Additional tropical storm or hurricane watches will likely be issued later in the day on Saturday.

Most long-range computer models suggest Maria could exploit the same break in a mid-level high pressure ridge that Jose did. and thus pass east of the southeastern USA coast this weekend and early next week.

And there are now two other tropical storms to the south of Jose that bear watching as well. Tropical Storm Lee is the farthest east and is not a threat to the United States or Caribbean Islands. The Eastern Seaboard may begin experiencing risky surf and rip currents from the storm this weekend; those impacts are already underway in the Bahamas, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico.

In addition, tropical storm warnings are in effect for St. Lucia, Martinique, Antigue and Barbuda.

The storm is expected to get strong Saturday, then start to weaken on Sunday. Lee is forecast to degenerate into a tropical wave early next week. By Sunday Morning, Lee weakened back to a tropical depression and is expected to fizzle out over the Atlantic.
