JOSE MOVING FAST

Tropical Storm Jose forms behind Hurricane Irma

Irma, meet Jose.

Tropical Storm Jose has formed in the Atlantic Ocean to the east of Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 monster plowing toward Antigua and perhaps Florida.

Jose, the 10th tropical storm of the season, has maximum sustained winds of 40 mph and is about 1,505 miles east of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The tropical storm is expected to gain strength in the next couple of days as it moves west-northwest and may become a hurricane by Friday, meteorologists said Tuesday.
