Hurricane Jose moving away from NC; Hurricane Maria approaching the US

Hurricane Jose moving away from NC; Hurricane Maria approaching the US

Forecasters said Maria would likely hit a string of islands on Monday night, including St. Barts, Guadeloupe, Dominica, St. Kitts, Nevis, Montserrat, and Antigua and Barbuda.

Meanwhile, a Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for St Lucia, Martinique, Barbados and St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Maximum sustained winds were expected to accelerate to 120mph within 72 hours, at which time the hurricane could reach the British and US Virgin Islands as well as Puerto Rico. A hurricane warning has been issued for the U.S. Virgin Islands where many people have been left without food, water or shelter.

Thereafter, a credible forecast on whether or not the US will be directly affected by (likely Hurricane) Maria is just not possible yet.

It was not expected to make landfall but its proximity to land will likely bring large and destructive waves, risky rip currents, beach erosion, heavy rainfall and wind Tuesday and Wednesday.

"On the forecast track, the centre of Maria will move across the Leeward Islands Monday night and then over the extreme northeastern Caribbean Sea on Tuesday", it said.




Jose will come close enough to the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast Tuesday into Wednesday morning to bring strong winds and heavy rain.

Maria is expected to graze the Dominican Republic before it moves more north toward Turks and Caicos and eventually into Atlantic Ocean.

Several watches and warnings remain in place, while others have been added in the latest advisory.

While the storm's center is expected to stay off-coast, its tropical-storm-force winds are extending out up to 200 miles. High surf is expected all along the East Coast of the U.S. Jose should take a hard turn into the Atlantic and begin to weaken further by Friday and Saturday.

Lee's maximum sustained winds have sputtered to 35 miles per hour, and are expected to further weaken in the coming days.
