Hurricane Maria on a Collision Course With Jose. East Coast at Risk.
Maria has hit Dominica as a category five storm as it prepares to bring further destruction to many of the islands already completely devastated by Irma. Some computer models have predicted this massive hurricane could then head north to meet with Jose, which would lead to a very rare event.
If this event happens, there is a good chance the stronger storm (Maria) would eventually absorb what is left of Jose. They would circle one another in a binary interaction that would lead to the closure of distance between the two systems creating a larger storm.
Jose is causing warnings to be issued in southern New England currently. New England will be dealing with heavy bouts of rain Tuesday, with strong winds joining Tuesday evening. Flood-prone areas should be on watch as moderate level coastal flooding is predicted.
Sadly Maria looks to hit many of the islands that have only weeks ago bore the brunt of Irma’s forces. Hurricane warnings are in effect for Guadeloupe, Dominica, St. Kitts, Nevis, Montserrat, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Culebra, and Vieques. Tropical storm warnings are in effect for Antigua and Barbuda, Saba and St. Eustatius, St. Maarten, Anguilla, St. Lucia, and Martinique.
After passing through these islands, Maria looks to start a northern swing as it hits the Dominican Republic. This might be a best-case scenario for the Florida Keys but brings further trouble to much of the east coast. If Maria moves north the east coast, which will be facing off against Jose, will need to prepare for intensified and lengthened storm-related issues even in the best case scenario where these two storms don’t combine forces.
Unfortunately, long-term computer models are still somewhat inaccurate. All that is known for sure is that no matter what Maria decides to do, it isn’t going to be good.
