NASA astronauts capture ominous footage of Hurricane Irma from space

Storm Katia rapidly weakens after making landfall in Mexico

The latest forecasts show the hurricane hitting Cuba next before making its way to Florida where experts predict it will make landfall as a category 4 storm, according to the World Meteorological Organization.

Category 1 is the NHC's weakest hurricane designation while Category 5 is the strongest. Jose has winds of 75 miles per hour (120 kph) and is quickly strengthening, but poses no immediate threat to land.

The hurricane is about 443 kilometres from Miami and moving about 19.3 km/h toward the west.

To determine the strength of a storm, scientists measure the storm's barometric pressure using millibars.

Having three hurricanes active at the same time in the Atlantic Basin is rather rare.

Uber under FBI investigation for spying on competitor Lyft
The authorities are reported looking into whether the ride-hailing company illegally used software to stalk its rival Lyft . It agreed to 20 years of external audits, which were triggered by a probe about another piece of software called God view.

As of early Sunday, Hurricane Irma has clocked in 10.75 hurricane days, making it the most hurricane days of a tropical cyclone since 2008′s Hurricane Ike, which accrued 10 days.

Katia was initially measured as a Category 1 storm with 75 miles per hour winds - far less powerful than Irma, which is quickly approaching Florida, and Jose which remains farther out in the Atlantic Ocean. So is the fact that it follows shortly on the heels of Hurricane Harvey, a storm that drenched Texas with more rain than has ever been recorded from a single event in American history.

Friday broke that nearly 56-year-old power record by more than 12%.

Travel to and from St. Martin and St. Bart was halted on Saturday with Jose closing in, while hurricane warnings put in place for Barbuda and Anguilla.

In its 4 p.m. advisory, the National Hurricane Center said Katia now has maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour. Jose will not make the same land impact as Irma, though its rains could worsen any ongoing flooding on islands already hit.
