Hurricane Fiona Devastates Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico Hurricane

Nearly a million customers remain without electricity and thousands are without running water, after Hurricane Fiona pummeled Puerto Rico on Sunday. The category 1 hurricane dumped more than 20 inches of rain, wiping out bridges, flooding homes, and causing landslides. The storm hit five years after Hurricane Maria, a category 4 storm, killed nearly 3,000 people and crippled the island’s infrastructure. Catholic Charities is providing aid to those affected by Hurricane Fiona.
