Hurricane Jose has lost strength over the last few days and is now carrying 75 miles per hour max sustained winds.

At one point, Jose was a Category 4 hurricane that barely missed the same islands in the Antilles where Irma made a direct hit.

The storm is forecast to head a few hundred miles east of the U.S. East Coast, possibly bringing rough seas and rainfall.
