Forecasters have predicted damaging winds, drenching rains and a risky storm surge from the Gulf of Mexico.
Mexican authorities are preparing for the impact of Hurricane Katia, which could affect over a million people as it rumbles towards the state of Veracruz from the Gulf of Mexico.
Katia emerged as a hurricane on Friday near Tecolutla, Mexico.
Katia was a smaller hurricane in comparison to more risky Irma and Jose.
Katia is forecast to produce total rain accumulations of 10 to 15 inches over northern Veracruz, and 2 to 5 inches over far southern Tamaulipas, central San Luis Potosi, western Hidalgo, eastern Queretaro, and southern Veracruz through Saturday morning.
Meanwhile, Mexico is dealing with the aftermath of a powerful natural disaster on Thursday night.
Veracruz state officials said in a statement on Friday that the storm could cause landslides and flooding, and urged people living below hills and slopes to be prepared to evacuate.
The quake, the strongest to strike Mexico in more than 80 years, killed at least 61 people. Katia was initially measured as a Category 1 storm with 75 miles per hour winds - far less powerful than Irma, which is quickly approaching Florida, and Jose which remains farther out in the Atlantic Ocean.
A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for St. Martin, Sint Maarten and St. Barthelemy, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Mexico's national emergency services said this week that Katia was worrying because it is very slow-moving and could dump a lot of rain on areas that have been saturated in recent weeks.
