YABUCOA, Puerto Rico (AP) —Officials in Puerto Rico say more than 200,000 customers have lost power due to the remnants of Hurricane Beryl, which is hitting the island with rains and gusty winds.

    Gov. Ricardo Rossello says the rains are likely to continue for another 10 to 12 hours, hitting hardest in the east.

    Officials say large trees have fallen and blocked several roads, one river has burst its banks and a landslide has been reported in the northern town of Naranjito.

    So far there are no reports of injuries.
