Just as the United States braces for potential damage caused by the impending Hurricane Irma, yet another tropical storm has formed in the Atlantic Ocean. On Tuesday, Tropical Storm Jose became the 10th storm of this year’s hurricane season.

Jose is currently located in the open waters of the Atlantic and is west-moving at roughly 13 mph with maximum wind speeds of 40 mph, according to reports Tuesday.

There are currently no coastal warnings for the storm, so it’s unclear what areas could be affected — if any. However, Jose’s winds extend outward as far as 45 miles from the storm’s center.

Federal and local agencies say they have rescued more than 13,000 people from Harvey in Houston and surrounding areas

And given how quickly both Harvey and Irma intensified, it makes keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Jose all the more important, as areas that are already stretched thin by preparing for Irma could very well be hit by Jose , too.

As Jose picks up momentum, experts predict that the tropical storm could become a hurricane by the end of the week. Meteorologist Kweilyn Murphy of NBC-affiliate WDSU in Greenville, North Carolina, said Jose could become a Category 2 hurricane by Sunday.

“The environment in which Jose is located in appears to be quite conducive for development for the next three days as the SSTs are very warm, the vertical shear is very low, and there is abundant mid-level moisture,” the National Hurricane Center said Tuesday.

While Jose appears to pose little immediate threat, Florida is bracing for potential destruction from Hurricane Irma — a storm that is making its way toward Antigua and potentially the East Coast of the U.S.

“This hurricane has the potential to be a major event for the East Coast,” said Evan Myers, AccuWeather expert senior meteorologist and chief operating officer. “Hurricane Irma’s impacts on the U.S. mainland may start to be felt at the end of the week, but it is not too early to start to make preparations.”

Florida Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency Monday and advised residents to prepare for the storm making landfall, as well as to keep an eye on up-to-date forecasts. The storm could reach Florida as early as Saturday morning.

“Floridians must prepare NOW,” Scott posted on Twitter Tuesday evening. The governor's office posted a list of state response efforts for Hurricane Irma.

Mexico: 1 missing, 200 homes damaged after Hurricane Max .
A person was missing and about 200 homes were reported damaged by water or wind in the Pacific coast state of Guerrero after Hurricane Max hit land east of Acapulco. Guerrero Gov. Hector Astudillo tweeted late Thursday that the disappearance and the damaged homes were in San Marcos, a township east of the resort city of Acapulco that lay in the storm's path. Max degenerated into a broad area of low pressure Friday, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center, but its remnants were still capable of dumping heavy rains over Guerrero and western Oaxaca states.
