I dont know about that sometimes I think the TV stations just talk it up if there is the slightest possibility to increase viewership. That said after these last 2 and if you live on the coast you should be prepared to take basic precautions just in case.

Jose will be weak if it gets near Montauk. Not a real worry.
Maria on the other hand is set to strengthen significantly and go over nearly the same path as Irma up to Puerto Rico. The island, which was spared from Irma, may take a hit from this one. No forecast beyond that yet. Interaction with land will weaken it.
Right now a high pressure ridge which you can identify on the radar by its clockwise direction will keep Maria in an area with little wind shear and lots of warm water. Forecasters are predicting strengthening to a major hurricane which is a category three or higher. It will also be steered westward as it's on the southern edge of the ridge.
Jose is pulling more northward now and it's to the west of the ridge. Long islands east end is in the far western part of the cone of probability . Unless things change and he moves more west than north it looks like the east coast will be spared.
Bermuda may feel something.
