Irma Gets Company: Jose And Kattia Also Churn In The Atlantic Basin

Hurricane Irma isn't the only dangerous storm churning in the Atlantic Basin.  

Just as Irma takes aim at South Florida, Hurricane Jose has reached up to major hurricane status and could follow through the Caribbean.  

Torrential rains from Jose could create life-threatening flooding across Antigua and Barbuda, which were devastated by Irma this week.  

The British Virgin Islands are also in Jose's path.

As of Friday morning, Jose was located about 535 miles east of the Lesser Antilles islands, and had maximum sustained winds of 125 mph, deeming it a Category 3 storm.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Katia threatens to slam into Mexico early Saturday, and could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides on Mexico's east coast.

As of early Friday, Katia was located about 170 miles southeast of Tampico, Mexico, and was stationary. 

It was projected to reach the coast of Mexico later Friday before making landfall on Saturday, according to the National Hurricane Center.  

This is the first time in seven years that three hurricanes have spun in the Atlantic Basin at the same time, according to Colorado State University meteorologist Phil Klotzbach.
