L’ouragan Maria qui reste toujours un Ouragan majeur de catégorie 3 sur l'échelle-Saffir Simpson a été localisé cet après-midi (jeudi 21 septembre 2017) à proximité des côtes Nord-est de la République Dominicaine. Il continuait son lent déplacement dans la direction Nord-Ouest avec une vitesse de 15km/h.
