Hurricane Jose moves north, prompting storm warning for New England

Tropical Storm Maria expected to strengthen into hurricane

Hurricane Maria strengthened into a Category 3 storm on Monday as it tracked closer to the storm-weary Leeward Islands, which are still recovering from Hurricane Irma less than two weeks ago.

The storm had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph an was centered about 265 miles east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., at 11 a.m.

The Caribbean islands under hurricane warning are Guadeloupe, Dominica, St Kitts and Nevis and Montserrat. Tropical storm warnings are in effect for St. Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda, on of the islands devastated by Irma.

Maria is following the same path as Hurricane Irma, which devastated many islands earlier this month, including Barbuda, the British Virgin Islands and Anguilla, killing at least 37 people, before hitting the USA, where 11 people died.

"The only definite thing that we know of will be a period of rain, some unsafe rip currents and some very rough surf particularly along the South Coast of MA and Rhode Island", said Matthew Belk, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

The storm was moving north-northwest at around 13 miles per hour, with a decrease in forward speed expected through Tuesday night, expected to become a "major hurricane".

And a tropical storm watch is in effect for St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Hurricane Maria, as of 5 am, was located at approximately 215 km east-southeast (ESE) of Dominica or 160 km east (E) of Martinique.

As if the Caribbean islands haven't had enough wind and rain from Hurricane Irma, there's a new storm about to batter the region.

Some gradual weakening is expected during the next few days, however, Jose will remain a hurricane through Tuesday, forecasters say.

French Officials Don't Suspect Terror In Attack
French media reports are describing the attacker using the word "déséquilibré", meaning a psychological imbalance. One attack, which was supposed to happen in April leading up to the French presidential election, was thwarted .

Maximum sustained winds were 90 miles per hour.

The warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected within 36 hours.

Also, Tropical Storm Watches have been issued for portions of the east coast of the USA because of Hurricane Jose.

The storm is now a Category 1 hurricane with winds of 90 miles per hour, and is forecast to continue moving toward the eastern Caribbean at 13 miles per hour. Forecast models generally agree on a track that takes Maria near Guadalupe and the northern islands of the Lesser Antilles today and near Puerto Rico tomorrow as a major hurricane. In addition, a third tropical system - Tropical Depression Lee - continues to churn the waters of the open Atlantic Ocean.
