Storm force winds of up to 85mph are forecast to slam into the eastern coast of Mexico later today, according to the National Hurricane Centre (NHC).

Now Hurricane Jose is forecast to rage through the same path during the next 48 hours after Irma left apocalyptic scenes in its wake.

A hurricane watch was issued for Antigua, Barbuda, Aguilla, St. Martin and St. Barthelemy - numerous same islands devastated by Irma on Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Hurricane Katia has made landfall 20 kilometers from Tecolutla and hit as a Category 1.

Earlier, he posted video on Facebook showing wind and pounding rain whipping the shoreline as Irma's core approached.

Jose and Katia strengthened Wednesday afternoon, bringing the number of hurricanes churning in the Atlantic basin to three.

Jose has exceeded all expectations by explosively intensifying into a Category 4 storm - the third straight hurricane in 2017 to do so, following Harvey and Irma.

However, according to Blake responding on Twitter, the 2010 images were "distorted to make it look similar", adding that Irma was likely to do a hundred times more damage than Igor or Karl.

Hurricane Jose will likely become a hurricane before the end of the week, but it's most likely to stay in the middle of the Atlantic, far from land, and Hurricane Katia will landfall in Central Mexico at the start of the weekend.

The NHC said as a depression, Katia was blowing maximum sustained winds of almost 56 km per hour and should dissipate over the mountains of central eastern Mexico later on Saturday.

Hurricane Irma may be getting most of the headlines right now, but it's sharing the Atlantic with Hurricane Jose and newly formed Hurricane Katia, too.

Up to 10 inches of rain could fall in the Leeward Islands from Antigua and Barbuda to Anguilla.

Two people died in a mudslide in Mexico sparked by storm Katia, and thousands were left without power as the weather front dissipated inland on Saturday, threatening to dump rains in waterlogged areas also shaken by a major natural disaster this week.
