- It's too early to tell whether it will make landfall on the USA mainland. There are now 3 active hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean, something that hasn't happened in almost 7 years, dating back to September of 2010.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the storm is now centered about 145 miles (235 kilometers) south of the Gulf coast city of Tampico in a mountainous region dotted with small towns. It's the 10th tropical storm of the season with maximum sustained winds of 60mph.

As Katia was making landfall, Hurricane Irma, one of the most powerful Atlantic storms in a century, walloped Cuba's northern coast as a Category 5 storm.

The storm was named on Tuesday and became a Category 1 hurricane on Wednesday afternoon when its maximum sustained winds hit 75 miles per hour.

Forecasters expect Jose to become a hurricane by 8 am ET Thursday, though it will still be far at sea.

This ominous development - three active hurricanes in the Atlantic at the same time - hasn't occurred since September 2010.
