Woman, children rescued from capsized ship near Puerto Rico

Woman, children rescued from capsized ship near Puerto Rico”

Two American Airlines planes from Miami and one from Philadelphia arrived at San Juan's Luis Munoz Marin International Airport Friday morning.

Operators of the Guajataca Dam said it failed at 2:10 p.m. ET, prompting the NWS to issue a flash flood emergency warning for Isabela and Quebradillas municipalities, home to some 70,000 people, the agency said in three tweets.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - The National Weather Service says the Guajataca Dam is failing in western Puerto Rico and buses are evacuating people "as quickly as they can".

Puerto Rico was struck Wednesday by Hurricane Maria, the second powerful storm to hit the island in as many weeks.

"This is an extremely risky and life-threatening situation".

Besides passengers, American said it would fly much-needed supplies, including food, water, lanterns, cots, tarps, fans, batteries, boots and generators, to Puerto Rico for use by its employees and their families. It had a capacity of 11 billion gallons in 1999, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The storm is now a Category 3 hurricane, and is moving away from the Turks and Caicos Islands. Still, that storm knocked out power to 70 percent of the island and left almost 40 percent of Puerto Ricans without running water.

After Maria hit Puerto Rico, President Donald Trump said that the tempest had "totally obliterated" the island, and promised to help rebuild Puerto Rico.
