What would happen to my data after switching from GRS to LRS?

I recently changed my storage account settings from GRS to LRS.

I'm wondering after I made the switched, what had happened to my data that was replicated and stored in the second location?

Did it data get deleted automatically from the second location or is it still setting there ?
