The eye of Hurricane Maria reached eastern Puerto Rico early on September 20, bringing maximum sustained winds of 150 mph, the National Hurricane Center said.

The government of France changed the Hurricane Watch for Saint Martin and Saint Barthelemy to a Tropical Storm Warning, the center reported. A hurricane warning remained in effect for the Virgin Islands and parts of the Dominican Republic, where Maria was expected to bring dangerous winds, storm surges and heavy rainfall.
