Hurricane Katia is the second hurricane of the season being upgraded from a tropical depression late Wednesday night.

Katia is moving toward the west-northwest near 20 mph and this motion, with a gradual slowing of forward speed, is expected over the next 48 hours. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 mph, with higher gusts. Katia is a Category One hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale.
