Tropical Storm Jose might be losing strength, but it is still lurking reported CNN. There is a possible threat that it can regain strength and march towards the Northeast.
This hurricane may not be as dangerous as Irma, but it still has 65 mph winds and a potential threat of flooding.
Jose was only 195 miles away from Nantucket, Massachusetts after it dumped rain on the Outer Banks in North Carolina and Virginia. This was reported early Wednesday.
However, the National Hurricane Center says, “Jose weakens as it moves over cooler ocean waters. Dangerous surf and rip currents along the US East coast will continue for several more days.”
Earlier Wednesday, the center also reported, “While the center of Jose is forecast to remain offshore of the US east coast, the large cyclone is expected to cause some direct impacts in portions of New England, and a tropical storm warning is in effect for Cape Cod, Block Island, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket.”
In one of their forecast discussions it was mentioned, “Any deviation to the left of the NHC forecast track would increase the likelihood and magnitude of impacts along the coast from Long Island to southern New England.”
They also mentioned that tropical storm conditions were expected in the warning area Wednesday morning and also in the watch area today.
It is possible that rainfall produced by Jose can result in flash flooding in eastern Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts, Nantucket and Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.
NHC mentioned, “Minor to moderate coastal flooding is possible from Delaware to southern New England during the next several days.”
People are in deep trauma, and we hope that Jose doesn’t regain its strength back and goes away without causing any damage.
America has suffered a big loss over the past several weeks and hundreds of thousands of innocents are dead.
