The Atlantic basin now has three hurricane-strength storms at once.
Katia was in the Gulf of Mexico, about 175 miles north of Veracruz, Mexico, and it’s expected to drop 5 to 10 inches of rain onto the city. It has winds of up to 75 mph. Jose was out over the Atlantic Ocean, about 1,000 miles from the Lesser Antilles islands.
The GOES-16 satellite captured this shot around 3:15 p.m. ET, with Katia approaching Mexico, Irma over the Caribbean islands, and Jose out in the Atlantic.
