Hurricane Jose spares storm-ravaged French Caribbean islands


MARIGOT: Storm-hit Saint Martin and Saint Barts escaped a further battering by Hurricane Jose, which had “markedly less” of an impact on the French Caribbean islands than anticipated, France’s meteorological agency said Sunday. The meteorological agency had issued its highest warning, saying the Category Four Hurricane Jose could become a “dangerous event of exceptional intensity.” But “there’s not a cloud in the sky,” one AFP reporter at the scene said. Jose passed 135 kilometers (83 miles) north of Saint Barts and 125 kilometers from Saint Martin—95 percent of which has already been ravaged by Hurricane Irma, which struck three days ago and is expected to reach Florida at 1000 GMT Sunday.
