I quote from ABC news:
"All Puerto Rican ports were closed. Gov. Sila Calderon banned alcohol sales in hopes of keeping citizens alert and urged people to stay indoors."
"Passenger ferry service to Puerto Rico's outlying tourist islands of Vieques and Culebra was suspended, authorities said. Government offices and courts were closed in Puerto Rico."
"At 2 p.m. EDT, Jeanne's center was about 25 miles south-southwest of San Juan.
Maximum sustained wind was near 70 mph, just 4 mph below hurricane status. Winds extended 60 miles."
