Hurricane Fiona Relief: Puerto Rico Fund


A hurricane that hit Puerto Rico on Sunday has left at least one person dead and millions of the island’s residents without power or running water. Hurricane Fiona, this season’s sixth named storm, is only the third to transform from a tropical storm into a hurricane since the Atlantic hurricane season started in June. The Category 1 hurricane brought sustained winds topping 85 mph and torrential rainfalls, with some regions receiving up to 25 inches, triggering floods and mudslides. It also caused an islandwide blackout. More than 1.3 million customers were still without power as of midday Monday. Puerto Rico Gov. Pedro Pierluisi said power had been restored to more than 100,000 users as of Monday afternoon and estimated the outage should not last longer than a few days. Fiona made landfall in the U.S. territory two days before the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Maria. Puerto Rican officials say the island’s power grid and infrastructure are still recovering from the devastation caused by Maria, which knocked out power for almost a year in some places and created the largest blackout in U.S. history. source:
