Hurricane Irma, one of the most powerful Atlantic storms in a century, walloped Cuba's northern coast on Saturday as it headed for Florida.

Meanwhile, PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi said PSG had nothing to hide. "We have nothing to hide". He said: "Some of the loan prices were too low".

Hurricane Katia has deteriorated into a soggy tropical depression that is dumping rain over the mountains of east-central Mexico. 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. "Some strengthening is forecast during the next day or so and Katia could be near major hurricane strength at landfall". In isolated parts of northern Veracruz, up to 25 inches of rain is possible.

Meanwhile, there are two other hurricanes active in the Atlantic Ocean.

The peak of the season is usually around September 10, and the fourth hurricane of the season doesn't typically occur until about September 21.
