After the Caribbean was left devastated by Hurricane Irma last week, there was worry that Jose could do further damage. But it appears to have spared, for the most part, that area.

Here’s what you need to know about Jose.

Where is Jose now?

Jose is about 640 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., and 485 miles southwest of Bermuda, according to the National Hurricane Center’s 5 p.m. ET advisory.


It has maximum sustained winds of 75 mph and is moving northwest at 10 mph, according to the advisory.

Jose downgraded to a tropical storm late Thursday morning, earlier than initially expected by forecasters. Jose became a Category 1 hurricane again by Friday afternoon.

What else should I know about the hurricane?

Shortly after Irma ravaged the Caribbean, Jose formed, threatening already wrecked houses, businesses and shelters with major loss of communication.

Jose passed north of the Caribbean islands and Puerto Rico on Sunday as a Category 4 hurricane. The Netherlands navy said the situation was “better than expected” after it passed north of the islands.

The storm is expected to move more northwest over the weekend. Forecasters said it would strengthen more on Saturday.

“Interests from North Carolina northward to New England on the east coast of the United States should monitor the progress of this system,” the National Hurricane Center said.

Swells causing life-threatening rip currents are affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico and the southeast U.S.
