He National Weather Service (SNM) issued on Sunday afternoon a flood warning for several municipalities following the development of temporary showers in the region.

According to the SNM, the following towns remain under a flood warning:

At 3:36 p.m., the meteorological agency’s Doppler radar recorded heavy rains linked to the passage of thunderstorms through the area.

The federal agency reported between 1 and 1.5 inches of precipitation and anticipated that an additional 1 to 2 inches of rain were expected.

Earlier, in an interview with The new dayThe meteorologist Walter Snellof the SNM, warned that the mass of Saharan dust currently affecting Puerto Rico would cause high heat levels and promote the development of electrical storms on the west coast.

As a result of these local effects, the government reported the likelihood of some brief and isolated showers in the area, accompanied by thunderstorms.

Saharan dust is expected to remain in the region for the next few days, so people are advised to avoid outdoor activities and wear masks and goggles to protect themselves.
