SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) Tropical Storm Karen drenched the U.S. Virgin Islands on Tuesday as it bore down on an earthquake-shaken Puerto Rico still scarred by a hurricane two years ago.
Heavy squalls were expected to hit some areas of the U.S. territories overnight as the storm moved slowly over the region and headed to open waters.
Forecasters said the heaviest rains would affect Puerto Ricos southern and eastern region from 8 p.m. Tuesday to about 2 a.m. on Wednesday.
