Jose, Katia Now Hurricanes

If you needed any other proof that we're in the peak of hurricane season, we're now watching three active hurricanes after Jose and Katia reached that status Wednesday afternoon.

Both storms are packing 75 mile per hour winds and are, for now, not a threat to the Gulf Coast.

Jose is no immediate threat to land as it moves through the eastern Atlantic, though further strengthening is expected and areas under threat from Hurricane Irma could see another major storm pass by just a few days later.

Katia is expected to meander in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico through the rest of the week before making a landfall along the coast of Mexico late Friday or early Saturday, bringing a threat of life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
