Tropical Storm Jose Forms In The Atlantic Ocean

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Tropical Storm Jose has formed in the open Atlantic far from land.

Jose is located to the east of Hurricane Irma, which is a powerful and dangerous storm heading toward Antigua and perhaps the United States.

Irma formed on the heels of Hurricane Harvey, which displaced thousands of residents in Texas.

Jose is the 10th tropical storm of the season and is about 1,330 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

NHC also adds that Jose is moving toward the west at 14 mph and continues to gradually gain strength.

Maximum sustained winds are 50 mph and the NHC says Jose could become a hurricane by Wednesday night.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles from the center.
