The recovery from Hurricane Irma has not really gotten started yet, but now there is another threat developing in the Atlantic. Tropical Storm Maria is now a category 1 hurricane and is expected to strengthen to a category 3 storm, or even higher. A category 3 hurricane is considered a major storm with winds of 111 to 129 miles per hour.
The path of Maria is currently going to take it over some of the some of the same islands hit hardest by Irma, including Barbuda, and the Virgin Islands. It is also possible that the storm will continue on a path that will take it Florida somewhere.
