Puerto Rico’s weather agency has warned of strong waves from Hurricane Lee, which could reach 4.6 meters high.

In this sense, the agency assures that “dangerous breaking waves and potentially deadly ocean currents are likely in the north of the Leeward Islands from today”.

We’ve been talking about it for several days and at the latest news, hurricane Lee is advancing on the Atlantic, now a category 4, but there remains a powerful system that threatens the beaches and coastal areas of the Lesser Antilles.
