Get Ready: Tropical Storm Karen Threatens to Flood Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands

Posted by on September 24th, 2019 Posted in: Emergency Preparedness and Response

Tropical Storm Karen will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands on Tuesday, but it’s too soon to know if it will eventually affect any other land areas, including the mainland United States.

Karen is centered less than 100 miles south of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and is moving north at 5 to 10 mph.

NOTE for DOCLINE Members: If your library will be closed due to the hurricane, please set your library “out of office” to temporarily deactivate lending in DOCLINE. If your library has never set your “out of office” before, please visit the NNLM DOCLINE website to learn how. Doing so will prevent requests from routing to your library during times of extended absence or special circumstances.
