Three hurricanes all in a neat row, a first for National Hurricane Center, are headed toward land this weekend, a baffling occurrence according to scientists.
The National Hurricane Center issued advisories on Friday for Hurricane Irma as well as Hurricane Jose and Hurricane Katia, which could make landfall on Saturday.
National Hurricane Center, Eric Blake, said on Twitter that he had "never seen anything like this in modern record."
Fox News noted that a similar pattern was observed in 2010, when hurricanes Igor, Julia, and Karl formed in locations almost identical to the 2017 hurricanes.
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.
Irma has already left a path of destruction as it passed through the northern Leeward Islands and Caribbean, and according to Mashable, the Category 4 or 5 storm now poses a threat to the Southeast, where it is projected to pass over South Florida on Saturday.
Meanwhile Hurricane Jose has been gathering in strength and could be headed in the same direction as Irma, toward the northern Leeward Islands.
CNN reported that the Category 3 storm was currently out over the open Atlantic, close to where Irma was a few days ago.
While it is possible that the storm will not make landfall, a hurricane watch has been issued for Antigua and Barbuda.
Hurricane Katia is intensifying as it moves southwest from the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.
AOL reported that the Category 2 or 3 storm is expected to make landfall in the state of Veracruz either on Friday night or Saturday.
