Hurricane Jose:

Hurricane Jose started off being just a tropical storm that follows behind hurricane Irma, but it has quickly climbed the charts so it is now a hurricane with 75 miles per hour winds. While as of the moment there are not any watch warnings for hurricane Jose, we should still be on alert, because, just like hurricane Irma this storm is growing by the day.
