Hurricane Jose strengthens to Category 3 storm

(AFP) — Hurricane Jose strengthened to a Category Three storm Thursday, as it followed in the path of Hurricane Irma, US weather forecasters said.

The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said the storm, located east of the Lesser Antilles, was packing winds of 120 miles per hour (195 kilometres per hour), as it moved northwest at nearly 18 miles per hour (30 kilometres per hour).

“Some additional strengthening is possible during the next 24 to 36 hours,” the NHC said.
