ORLANDO, Fla. — Hurricane Fiona is moving away from the Caribbean after strengthening overnight to a major Category 3 storm.
Puerto Rico is struggling to recover. And for many, it’s deja vu.
Tuesday marks five years to the day that Hurricane Maria struck the island.
A large part of the island still doesn’t have power and it could be days before power is restored.
At the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs office in Orlando, they are mobilizing to help those affected by the catastrophic storm.
The storm caused widespread destruction and dumped up to 30 inches of rain.
Officials on the island said the flooding might be worse than Hurricane Maria.
Officials said two-thirds of the population are without running water.
The storm is blamed for at least three deaths in the Caribbean.
