Adding to the Puerto Ricans’ feelings of trepidation is that a large number of those rooftops were never completely fixed after Maria, with blue canvases filling in as an unfavourable token of what was crushed before and what keeps on being compromised on Thursday.
In its 11 a.m. warning, the National Weather Service office of Puerto Rico cautioned that the flood dangers and strong breezes introduced a dangerous circumstance for Puerto Ricans.
José Pagán told The Associated Press that he didn’t anticipate that the effects should be as extreme as they were, yet he encountered some flooding in his home and lost force.
“I didn’t think it would have been this solid,” he told the A.P. “It’s a somewhat troublesome encounter since it helps us to remember Maria.”
Photographs and video flowed via web-based networking media all through Thursday morning of streets totally washed over, and floodwaters are arriving at structures.
