Irma's powerful center could pass just north of Puerto Rico - a United States territory of about 3.4 million people - on Wednesday afternoon and night, threatening heavy rain and unsafe coastal storm surges, forecasters said. This system formed in the western Gulf of Mexico from a lingering disturbance earlier this week.

CBS News weather producer David Parkinson reports that this is the first time since 2010 that there are three named hurricanes all at once. It remained unclear, exactly, what path Jose would take in the coming hours and days.

Although forecasters are watching Jose closely, the more pressing concern is Hurricane Irma, a "potentially catastrophic" Category 5 storm. The storm strengthened to a hurricane by Wednesday evening. Unlike Harvey, which moved to the north and strengthened rapidly, Katia is expected to stick close to Mexico.
