After Typhoon Irma the Caribbean islands are waiting for Tropical Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Jose
Tropical Storm Maria may hit Sunday, prompting US weather forecasters to issue warnings to a group of Caribbean islands, some of which were hit by Hurricane Irma less than two weeks ago.

Hurricane Maria was about 405 miles (655 km) southeast of the Leeward Islands, with a maximum wind of 65 km / h, according to the US National Hurricane Center.

"Hurricane Maria is expected to arrive within the next 48 hours, perhaps today or tomorrow," an official source said.

The typhoon warned that the US, British and US Virgin Islands in Puerto Rico should monitor the storm's progress. The Puerto Rican government has already begun preparations for Maria, who is expected to arrive there on Tuesday, officials said.
