The Atlantic officially has three hurricanes churning simultaneously —
Irma, Jose and Katia.

Irma, a powerful Category 5 storm, is currently battering Puerto Rico
and on track to slam into Florida, while Jose is barreling toward the
Caribbean Islands, while Katia is menacing the Gulf of Mexico. Both Jose
and Katia intensified from tropical storms into hurricanes today (Sept. 6).

The last time three hurricanes were active at once was 2010, when
hurricanes Igor, Julia and Karl were classified as hurricanes, according
to records from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The record for the most hurricanes active at once is four — that was set
in 1998 when Hurricanes Georges, Ivan, Jeanne and Karl intensified
simultaneously. Before that, the last time four hurricanes were active
at the same time was Aug. 22, 1893.
