ORLANDO, Fla. – Tropical Storm Jose has formed in the open Atlantic far from land.

Jose is located to the east of Hurricane Irma, which is a powerful and dangerous storm heading toward Antigua and perhaps the U.S.

Jose is the 10th tropical storm of the season. It has maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) and is about 1,505 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

The storm is expected to stay away from the United States, but it's too early to determine its path.
