Jose becomes a hurricane again in the Atlantic

Jose became a Category 1 hurricane again Friday, as the storm continued to churn toward a possible landfall on the East Coast of the U.S.

The storm's maximum sustained winds Friday were 75 mph.

The National Hurricane Center, in its 5 pm ET update, said places from North Carolina north to New England should monitor the storm's progress. The hurricane was moving northwest at 10 mph as of late Friday afternoon, the NHC said.

Meanwhile, a new tropical depression has formed far out over the Atlantic and is expected to become a tropical storm. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the depression's maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 kph) and it's forecast to strengthen to a tropical storm later in the day or on Saturday.
