The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* Portions of Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands, including the
  following areas, in Puerto Rico, Central Interior, Culebra,
  Eastern Interior, Mayaguez and Vicinity, North Central,
  Northeast, Northwest, Ponce and Vicinity, San Juan and
  Vicinity, Southeast, Southwest, Vieques, and Western Interior.
  In Virgin Islands, St Croix and St.Thomas...St. John...and
  Adjacent Islands.

* Through this evening

* Deep southerly flow extends across Puerto Rico and the U.S.
  Virgin Islands in the wake of Hurricane Maria. This will
  continue to lead to heavy rainfall, especially along the
  southern slopes of Puerto Rico, St Thomas, and St John. The
  additional rainfall will allow for rapid rises along all
  streams and rivers in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
  Mudslides are also expected. Any homes in low-lying areas near
  rivers and streams will be flooded, and flooding may leave
  residents with no avenue of escape.


A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding.
