The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands.

* Through Friday afternoon

* Rainfall associated with Hurricane Maria will continue to lead
  to rapid rises along all streams and rivers at 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. Those in
  coastal areas may have streams and rivers backed up from storm
  surge created by the hurricane.


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