IN SPACE - SEPTEMBER 7: In this satellite handout from NOAA, Tropical Storm Maria churns in the Atlantic with sustained winds of 50 mph September 7, 2011 as seen from space. The National Hurricane Center's predictions put Maria on track to affect the U.S. Virgin Islands on September 10, still as a tropical storm. (Photo by NOAA via Getty Images)

It’s not time to panic: Hurricane Maria is just entering the Caribbean, and may follow close to Irma’s path, but Maria is not (at this time) forecast to become as strong, nor is she forecast to visit Florida.

Maria was upgraded to a hurricane Sunday evening.

It may be a bit early to know Maria’s future path. Computer models have the storm turning north before reaching Florida, but that, as we know, is subject to change.

Islands in the Caribbean area already facing hurricane warnings.
