Hurricane Maria is strengthening in the Caribbean and its latest path shows the storm threatening islands that are only just recovering from Hurricanes Irma and Jose.

The Category 5 storm, with winds clocking at 130 mph, was expected to hit the Leeward Islands late on Monday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Maria could then take aim at Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and St. Martin over the next few days. Click or tap the arrows in the hurricane map below to follow Hurricane Maria’s path as tracked by the National Hurricane Center:
