Hurricane Fiona continues to weave a deadly and destructive path through the Caribbean after touching down in southwestern Puerto Rico on Sunday, Sept. 18, causing widespread flooding and leaving behind critical power and infrastructure damage.
President Biden has declared an emergency in Puerto Rico, calling on both the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to coordinate disaster relief efforts for residents of the U.S. territory.
Media outlets report most people in the storm’s path were left without power or water in the immediate aftermath.
Many of Puerto Rico’s 3.1 million residents still were recovering from when Hurricane Maria slammed the island in 2017, causing widespread infrastructure damage, leveling homes and killing thousands.
