Tropical Storm Karen speeds up after soaking Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands

Large earthquake hits off Puerto Rico's coast as Tropical Storm Karen closes in Puerto Rico braces for flooding, landslides from Karen

National Hurricane Center projection of Tropical Storm Karen's path Tuesday morning. The storm is about 330 miles (531 kilometers) north-northeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico and it is moving north at 14 mph (23 kph).

The European (orange triangle) model and GFS model (purple square) forecast that Karen will make small loop followed by a westerly forward direction towards the northern Bahamas.

- Hurricane Lorenzo continues to gain strength as it moves through the Atlantic.

There is now no threat to land.

As of 5 p.m. EDT, Lorenzo was about 835 miles west of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands.

But, there's a lot going on in the Atlantic with Tropical Storm Jerry and newly formed Hurricane Lorenzo, so forecasters say it's too soon to know what impact Karen could have or what intensity it will be.


At 5AM, Tropical Storm Karen was located 20.5 degrees north, 65.2 degrees west or approximately 148 miles north northwest of the British Virgin Islands.

Karen is forecast to strengthen during the next 48 hours.

Jerry has lacked organized deep convection since yesterday and is now designated as a post-tropical cyclone.

As it prepared for the potential devastation of an impending hurricane, the nation of Puerto Rico has been hit with an additional natural disaster in the form of a large quake. Later Tuesday morning, the National Hurricane Center forecast up to 8 inches of rain in some areas.

The risk of flash floods will likely continue through Wednesday. The big unknowns are whether Karen can develop a well-organized circulation, which is necessary for significant strengthening, and the degree to which dry air affects the storm.

A "major hurricane" is defined as having winds above 111 miles per hour, according to the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.


The announcements come even as Tropical Storm Karen is still expected bring a lot of rainfall to the U.S. Virgin Islands tonight.

Puerto Rico's Department of Education said on Monday that it's "taking the necessary measures" to guarantee security during the storm.

Irish Weather Online experts said that Tropical Storm Jerry, which is now in the Caribbean, could be arriving on our shores at the weekend.

A tropical storm warning remains in effect for Bermuda, however, and Jerry will pass very close to the island later today.

The most harmful natural disaster to strike Puerto Rico in new background happened in October 1918, a 7.3 magnitude quake that struck in close proximity to the island's northwest coastline, producing a tsunami and killing 116 men and women.

"Finding Lucy is a top priority", Fields said recently, according to CNN.
