As of 4 p.m. Thursday, Jose was 590 miles to the east of the Lesser Antilles and was tracking to the west-northwest at 18 mph.

During peak hurricane season - right now - it's not at all uncommon to see one, two, or in this case, three tropical storms and hurricanes in the Atlantic. One person in Barbuda is dead after the storm, which destroyed 90% of the buildings on the island, according to ABC News.

Jose is a small storm.

As Florida prepares for Hurricane Irma and Jose swirls in the ocean, Tropical Storm Katia popped up in the Gulf of Mexico to become the 11th named storm of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season.

The forecast from the hurricane center has Jose reaching 75 mph - hurricane strength is 74 mph - in 36 hours.

Hurricane Irma is not the only show in town.

French President Emmanuel Macron says he expects that victims and heavy damages will be discovered when Hurricane Irma has left the islands of Saint Martin and Saint Barthelemy in the French West Indies.

"The last time this happened was in 2010 when Igor and Julia were both major hurricanes on September 15-16, and then Igor and Karl were both major hurricanes briefly on September 17".

Hurricane Jose has formed in the open Atlantic, far from land and well east of Hurricane Irma.

The hurricane earlier Wednesday battered a string of northern Caribbean island nations, situated east of the more populous Virgin Islands group and Puerto Rico.

Earlier in the day, Katia was slightly nearer to the Mexican coast, and at about 10 pm CDT (0300 GMT) was moving east-southeast at around 2 miles per hour (4 kph), the center said.

Unfortunately, it's just too early to tell where this storm will go. The northern Leewards are now being threatened by Category 5 Hurricane Irma.
