Hurricane Jose Eyes New York

Hurricane Jose has restrengthened into a Hurricane in the Atlantic, and may threaten New York City and other areas of the East Coast by this Wednesday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

From Bloomberg:

Jose was about 485 miles (775 kilometers) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, after redeveloping into a Category 1 hurricane late Friday. Jose’s path could put it near New Jersey and New York by Wednesday morning, although it may weaken to a tropical storm again by then, the center said.

The storm may add to an already devastating 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, coming just after Hurricane Harvey inundated Texas and Hurricane Irma raked Florida’s west coast, leaving dozens of people dead and upending energy and agriculture markets.

In 2012, Superstorm Sandy created about $70 billion of damage after hitting the New York metropolitan region.

    While Jose is currently forecast to remain offshore of the U.S.
    coast from Virginia northward to New England, the large cyclone
    could cause some direct impacts to these areas and any deviation to
    the left of the NHC forecast track would increase the likelihood and
    magnitude of those impacts. Interests along the U.S. east coast
    from Virginia to New England should monitor the progress of Jose
    through the next several day
