Hurricanes Jose, Katia form within minutes of each other
The National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Katia has formed in the Gulf off the coast of Mexico with sustained winds of 75 mph.
The government of Mexico has issued a hurricane watch for the coast of the state of Veracruz from Tuxpan to Laguna Verde. Katia is anticipated to drift toward the coast on Thursday.
The announcement of Hurricane Katia came minutes after the NHC said Hurricane Jose had formed in the open Atlantic, far from land and well east of Hurricane Irma.
Jose has winds of 75 mph and is quickly strengthening, but poses no immediate threat to land.
