Storm weary residents of the Caribbean got some more bad news Thursday after the National Hurricane Center said that Tropical Storm Jose is expected to become a major hurricane by Friday. 

Jose comes on the heels of Hurricane Irma, a category 5 storm with sustained winds as high as 180 miles per hour. Irma is the strongest Atlantic Ocean storm to ever be recorded. 

The Netherlands has issued a tropical storm watch for the islands of Saba and St. Eustatius while the government of Antigua issued a Hurricane Watch for the islands of Antigua and Barbuda. 

Hurricane Irma has already left millions without power and has killed at least 10 people.
