  • Tropical Storm Jose forms in the Atlantic, could be hurricane by Friday

These are the areas that were hit or will likely be impacted by the storm between now and Sunday.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Jose is now a Category 1 storm.

"There's nothing magical about the September 10 date", CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller said.

Category 5 storms have sustained winds - at least a minute - of 252 km/h or higher.

The full hurricane season lasts from June 1 to November 30.

Irma is a potentially catastrophic hurricane that will affect the Virgin Islands, the Dominican Republic and Haiti, as well as Cuba, the Bahamas, the Florida Keys and peninsula and the southeastern USA coastal states.

It is expected to make landfall on Saturday morning, when it is forecast to become a major hurricane, according to the US National Hurricane Center (NHC). "I'm glad Floridians are taking it very seriously", said Colorado State University meteorology professor Phil Klotzbach.

Midcie Francis of the National Office of Disaster Services confirmed there was damage to several homes, but said it was too early to assess the extent of damage. Only 60 hurricanes have formed in November since 1851, compared with 205 October hurricanes, NOAA reports.

Residents interviewed by the commission and first responders suggested the attack happened during a regular religious gathering. The United States was also cited in the report for what they claim were legal strikes against Al Qaeda militants at a mosque.

Jose is potentially a greater threat, with little impediment to it developing into a bigger storm. The average risk is 52%. Instead, it's expected to curve up into the open Atlantic and become a major hurricane - Category 3 or more - with winds up to 115 miles per hour.

"If you are told to evacuate, get out quickly", Scott said. "Trying to find climate change signals is pretty hard".

This is the fifth storm to transition into a hurricane this summer.

The country was battered by Hurricane Matthew past year, which killed more than 270 people across the Caribbean. 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.

Just as Jose was upgraded to a hurricane Wednesday afternoon, so was Katia.

House approves first $7.9 billion for Harvey disaster relief
Mnuchin said on Fox News Sunday that if Congress appropriates the money, there must be enough available to cover the Harvey aid. Democrats are offering to support the Senate bill as long as the debt ceiling increase is only for three months.

The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Storm Jose as it was consolidating. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour (65 kph) with higher gusts.
