Barely a week after Hurricane Irma tore through, several islands in the Caribbean are bracing for a direct hit from another major hurricane - Maria.

"Significant strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Maria is expected to become a risky major hurricane before it moves through the Leeward Islands", according to the National Hurricane Center's latest update.

Over the next four days, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Anguilla and Antigua and Barbuda are all in the line of fire of Maria, which is forecast to become a category three hurricane by Tuesday evening.

By the middle of the week, Hurricane Maria is expected to wreak havoc over the British and the US Virgin Islands along with parts of Puerto Rico.

To make matters even worse, Hurricane Jose is headed north and is expected to remain a Category 1 storm through Monday night.

NFL Notebook: Arizona re-signs Chris Johnson
Johnson had 1,239 rushing yards, 870 receiving yards and 20 total touchdowns in 2016, his first All-Pro season of his career. Veteran Chris Johnson re-signed with the Cardinals on Tuesday, less than two weeks after the team released him September 1.

Residents on islands in the eastern Caribbean are bracing for the arrival of Hurricane Maria less than two weeks after being lashed by Hurricane Irma, which claimed at least 84 lives.

A "burst of convection" occurred in Maria's center yesterday afternoon, with an open eyewall forming in the storm's core, National Hurricane Center forecasters said. It is located 335 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and 415 miles west of Bermuda and is moving about 9 mph.

Maria was located east of the islands early Monday and will continue moving west-northwest at about 10 miles per hour, with that motion decreasing in forward speed through Tuesday evening. High surf is expected all along the East Coast of the U.S. Jose should take a hard turn into the Atlantic and begin to weaken further by Friday and Saturday. We will continue to watch and have updates in the days ahead. Tropical Storm Watch is in effect from DE to MA.

The warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected within 36 hours. Maria packed top winds of 75 miles per hour as of early Sunday evening.
