Noaa Weather Update

Noaa Weather Update: NOAA - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - Weather: NOAA Radios Become Critical As Extreme Weather Events Increase:  Rain from the outer bands of Tropical Storm Emily began falling Tuesday in Puerto Rico as the system moved on a track that would take it to the island of Hispaniola within 48 hours and possibly to Florida by the end of the week.

With the storm stalling south of Puerto Rico, most government offices closed and people cleared water and other emergency supplies from store shelves. The showers and wind gusts were sporadic and there were no reports of major flooding or injuries.

The storm was expected to bring up to 6 inches (15 centimeters) of rain in Puerto Rico, enough to trigger floods and mudslides to an island that is already saturated from months of heavy rain.
The storm was moving on a northwestern track that forecasters said would reach Hispaniola, the island shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic, by Wednesday. Both countries, but especially Haiti, are prone to devastating floods.
