State of emergency declared amid heavy rains

By on November 22, 2016

SAN JUAN – Puerto Rico has declared a state of emergency and activated the National Guard due to heavy rains that have caused $13 million in crop losses.

Interim Gov. Víctor Suárez said Tuesday that coffee, rice, fruits and vegetables are among the devastated crops.

Officials say the heavy rains that began on Sunday have unleashed widespread flooding, caused several small landslides and damaged infrastructure. Some 14 inches (36 centimeters) of rain have fallen this month, nearly 10 inches (25.4 centimeters) above average.

Following heavy rains in recent days, several landslides have been reported. There are 14 refugees in Loíza. (INS)
