Satellites show Hurricane Katia crawling to the Mexico coast

14 Septembre 2017

Unlike Hurricane Irma's path, Hurricane Jose is forecast to move north and away from Puerto Rico and remain in the Atlantic Ocean, avoiding numerous chains of Caribbean islands that Irma has wrecked.

The storm has maximum sustained winds of 45 miles (75 kilometers) an hour, and is inching towards the east-southeast at a speed of five miles (seven kilometers) per hour, the NHC said in its 1500 GMT bulletin.

On Sept. 7 at 1 p.m. EDT (1700 UTC) the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Terra satellite captured a visible-light image of Hurricane Katia in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. A hurricane watch has been issued for the Mexican state of Veracruz by the Mexican government.

Two people died in a mudslide in Mexico sparked by storm Katia, and thousands were left without power as the weather front dissipated inland on Saturday, threatening to dump rains in waterlogged areas also shaken by a major quake this week.

All eyes are on Hurricane Irma as it moves toward Florida, but it's not alone.

Jose is the 10th named storm of the season. Isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches are possible in northern Veracruz.

Katia is located about 200 miles east of Tampico, Mexico. This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides, especially in areas of mountainous terrain.

Katia is moving toward the west-southwest near 3 miles per hour (6 km/h) and this general motion is expected to continue until the system makes landfall within the hurricane warning area by early Saturday, Sept. 9. But the hurricane center says Katia is expected to stay offshore through Friday morning.

Hurricanes Jose and Katia are both getting stronger.
