Hurricane Katia churns off Mexican coast before expected drift to land

Hurricane Katia churns off Mexican coast before expected drift to land

Katia, which is located in the western Gulf of Mexico, is packing winds of 80 miles per hour, according to an 11 p.m. ET advisory from the National Hurricane Center.

Hurricane Jose graduated from tropical storm status Wednesday afternoon when sustained winds picked up to 75 miles per hour.

Katia, a Category 1 hurricane, was 195 miles (314 km) east of the port of Tampico, blowing maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour (121 km per hour), the Miami-based NHC said.

The category five hurricane is now passing over the northern Virgin Islands and will reach the USA state of Florida on Saturday or Sunday.

The hurricane earlier Wednesday battered a string of northern Caribbean island nations, situated east of the more populous Virgin Islands group and Puerto Rico.

While the Caribbean faces the possibility of being affected by a second major hurricane, Mexico is braced for the arrival of Hurricane Katia.

It is feared the storm may strengthen to a potentially devastating category three hurricane, which can bring winds of up to 129mph.

CBS News weather producer David Parkinson reports that this is the first time since 2010 that there are three named hurricanes all at once.

At this time, Jose is not expected to follow the same path as Irma.

The National Hurricane Center predicts little movement for Katia over the next few days, but the forecast suggested it would become a hurricane before drifting toward the coast of the Mexican state of Veracruz on Thursday.

"Barbuda is literally rubble", Prime Minister Gaston Browne of Antigua and Barbuda told ABS TV/Radio Antigua. Isolated amounts of 10 inches are possible. The storm is expected to hit Mexico as and when it moves.
