As anticipated, stronger rains and gusts of wind associated with Tropical Storm Laura were affecting the municipalities of central and northern Puerto Rico in the afternoon, although fortunately no emergency situation was reported.  In mountainous areas, as is often the case due to the effects of higher elevation, some gusts and even stronger downpours were reported.
There have also been no reports of dangerous situations or emergencies. Similarly, there were no reports of large-scale power outages in the municipalities grouped under Zone 2 of the Emergency Management and Disaster Administration Bureau (Nmead), which includes Ciales, Corozal, Florida, Manatí, Morovis, Orocovis, Vega Alta and Vega Baja. However, power outages were reported in some sectors.
On the other hand, it was reported that two people, a 74-year-old man and a 55-year-old woman, are in the Morovis shelter, at the Ángel Quintero School . As it was learned, the couple went to the shelter because their wooden house has many leaks.
