Days after Irma devastated the Leeward Islands, another hurricane is making a close pass to the islands. That night, it is expected to be near the Turks and Caicos islands and the southeastern Bahamas, where storm surges of up to 20 feet are possible, the hurricane center said.

"The system will likely end up moving inland over the northern coast of southeastern Mexico sometime late this week or this weekend", said AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski.

The State Emergency Committee of Civil Protection for that region warned residents that "Katia landed to the north, please stay calm", while state governor Miguel Ángel Yunes warned that risk zones evacuate noting that personnel from the Mexican Army and Navy are working with the DN-III Plan.

Irma's core slammed Barbuda early Wednesday before moving over St. Martin and Anguilla and parts of the British Virgin Islands.
