Weather Alert: The further into the afternoon, the more rain will fall

The expected heavy rainfall has already begun to be recorded this Saturday, and is expected to intensify further as the afternoon and evening progress, the National Weather Service in San Juan said.

At approximately 3:30 p.m., the first flash flood warning was activated for Naguabo, in effect until 6:00 p.m., and the Blanco River was expected to flood on Highways PR-31 and PR-191.

Heavy rain was also reported in other cities in the east of the island, while showers were felt in the capital region.

“Rain shower activity with isolated thunderstorms continues to affect eastern Puerto Rico and has begun to expand to include different sectors of the island, including the south, center, and north,” the weather agency stated.

“Will the rain continue? Will the rainy weather continue over the weekend? The answer to both questions is affirmative. “At this time, the chance of rain is 90-100%, and activity is expected to increase later in the afternoon and evening,” she added. .
