For the first time in seven years, the Atlantic Basin has three hurricanes simultaneously.
Major Hurricane Irma is a Category 5 storm poised to impact the Bahamas and the state of Florida this weekend.
Hurricanes Jose and Katia are minimal hurricanes at this time but could strengthen over the coming days. Katia is expected to impact Mexico later this week while Jose remains out over the open ocean.
