It's the first time in more than 5 years that three storms have been active at the same time in the same region.

The primary USA corn and soybean crops lie far from the areas of direct impact, but the grain markets could experience indirect effects of Irma as it is likely to disrupt logistics, particularly the movement of supply to both feed mills and ports. Jose has winds of 75 miles per hour (120 kph) and is quickly strengthening, but poses no immediate threat to land.

Tropical Storm Katia also strengthened to Hurricane Katia on Wednesday afternoon. And they are very different storms.

Hurricanes Irma (L) and Jose are pictured in the Atlantic Ocean in this September 7, 2017, NOAA satellite handout photo. Jose's projected path is expected to come close to striking Barbuda this weekend.

Both hurricanes appeared after the deadly Hurricane Irma, a category 5 storm, which has become the strongest ever recorded in the Atlantic.

Hurricane Katia, in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico, has already triggered a watch in the Mexican state of Veracruz, according to the National Hurricane Center. The western quadrant of the storm was over the east coast state of Veracruz, Mexico.

"It's gonna be weakening a little bit", National Weather Service Meteorologist Steve Nelson said. Meanwhile Jose formed earlier in the week in the wake of Irma.

"We've got some effects that are probably going to take place on Tuesday", Head said, referencing the current weather models for Irma. But late Wednesday we should see the system exit, with clearing skies behind the remnants. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour (65 kph) with higher gusts.

Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said his government was evacuating six islands in the south because authorities would not be able to help anyone caught in the "potentially catastrophic" wind, flooding and storm surge.

The deadly Category 5 storm left devastation and death in its wake and as it continues menacing north, more destruction is expected.

"We have a lot of broken trees across the island", Meade said from Antigua, whose 80,000 people comprise most of the two-island nation's population.
