Reports state that a failing dam is causing "extremely dangerous" flooding on a Puerto Rico river in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

The National Weather Service said the "imminent failure" of the Guajataca Dam is a "life-threatening situation".

More than 70,000 people live in the nearby towns of Isabela and Quebradillas.

At least 13 people have died since Maria ripped through Puerto Rico, knocking out power to the whole island.
