Tropical Storm Isaias is expected to become a hurricane on Friday


The National Hurricane Center said Thursday that Tropical Storm Isaias, which hits the Dominican Republic on a predicted path to the U.S. east coast, would likely become a hurricane on Friday. The storm has already triggered small landslides and caused widespread flooding and power outages in Puerto Rico, which is still recovering from previous hurricanes and earthquakes.The storm’s maximum sustained winds of 60 mph also knocked down trees and some telephone and power cables across the island.

The southern region of Puerto Rico, which is still shaken by daily tremors, has been particularly affected. Santos Seda, mayor of the southwestern town of Guánica, told The Associated Press he had received reports of downed trees and flooded neighborhoods where there are still houses damaged by the earthquake.
