Miami, Aug 29 (SF) .- The tropical storm season complicates Puerto Rico again. The island closed the schools on Wednesday, gave the order to the officials to stay at home and diverted the passage of the cruise ships waiting during the day of Dorian’s arrival.
Hurricane Dorian advances at 112 kilometers per hour and threatens heavy rains.
President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency for the Commonwealth, which allows the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to mobilize equipment and resources to alleviate the impacts of the natural phenomenon. Dorian will test the Puerto Rican electrical system that had to be renovated after the devastating hurricane Maria passed in 2017, which left more than 3,000 fatalities.
“The greatest impact of this cyclone is the rain,” said Roberto García, director of the National Meteorological Service office in San Juan, the capital of the island.
Dorian’s road map threatens to touch the State of Florida this Sunday or Monday turned into a category 3 hurricane, of a maximum of 5. Authorities have said to prepare for floods and high winds.
