I’ve been saying for a while that we are in the final weeks of summer (and that there will be a few more weeks left in the year), and Puerto Rico is one of those places that you could almost always feel the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, and the Southern Ocean all around you. If you have ever traveled to the island, you know that every day is a new adventure.
Puerto Rico is also the most tropical place in the Caribbean (it’s also the most hurricane-prone, by the way). Hurricanes are a common occurrence here and they can be nasty and deadly. Hurricane Irma has already knocked out power, downed communications, and left the island in a state of complete darkness. The worst thing that could happen to the power system in the country is for a hurricane to hit.
Puerto Rico is very tropical in many ways. There is a tropical climate here, with temperatures ranging from 98 to 115 degrees. When it first hit the island, it was in the 100s, but it’s now hitting the 90s and 100s, with some places seeing temperatures as low as 60 degrees. So far all the damage has been done by the hurricane itself, but it’s still up in the 90s (and that’s just for tonight).
Puerto Rico is an island, not a state. Its a territory, which means that its a country. Though it’s not technically a country either it does have a president, as well as a governor. In fact, even though its not technically a country it does also have a head of state. Its still a country though. Puerto Rico is a republic. A republic is like a country with a president and a head of state, but it has its own government.
The island of Puerto Rico is only 6.4 million people. Its an island, and by the law of the ocean that means that its a country with a president. Its not technically a country either, but it does have a head of state, so it counts.
Puerto Rico is a place with an official name but as you can tell from the first letter of its capital city, there is no official state or head of state. However, the country’s government is officially known as The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (the capital is, of course, Puerto Rico). The people of Puerto Rico are known as the “Puerto Ricans”. The island is a part of a group of more than a dozen other US territories.
Puerto Rico is an island in the Caribbean. It’s the second-most-populous of the US islands and is located within the island of Virgin Islands. It is also located in the US Caribbean region and is home to about 15% of the US Caribbean population. Puerto Rico is home to some of the largest cities in the island, including San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is also home to the headquarters of the US Virgin Islands’ military.
Puerto Rico has the most tropical weather in the Caribbean region. That’s probably why so many Puerto Ricans say they “love” tropical weather. Although most people seem to have more than a passing interest in the tropical climate of Puerto Rico than the rest of the Caribbean, some have a real fondness for the Puerto Rican climate because it’s the only one that’s never seemed to get cold.
Puerto Rico is actually one of the most tropical climates in the world. It is also one of the most hurricane prone regions of the Caribbean. For every one hurricane that wrecks Puerto Rico, there are probably at least a dozen or more tropical systems that bring rain to the island. Hurricane season runs from June to November and a storm season is in effect from June to October.
Hurricane season is on a bit of a rollercoaster. On one side, you have the “real” hurricane season, when you can expect to see at least one hurricane battering the region. On the other side, you have the “hurricane-free” season, when you won’t have hurricanes impacting your region. The hurricanes hitting Puerto Rico during hurricane season are called “hurricanas”.
