José, Maria and Lee have been active in the Atlantic
Jose has defied the forecasts and may bring tropical storm winds in Massachusetts in the next 36 hours. It is unlikely to cause much of an economic impact.
The great threat is Maria. It has strengthened into a Category 3 hurricane with winds at 120 km / h.
A hurricane warning is in effect for:
- Saint Kitts, Nevis, Montserrat
- Saint Lucia
- U.S. Virgin islands
- British Virgin Islands
The latest forecast from the NHC said «Additional rapid
the strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Maria is
should be a dangerous major hurricane as it moves through the
Leeward Islands and northeastern Caribbean Sea.»
The trajectory takes more to the north at the approach of the united States, but it has a wide cone of uncertainty.
