On Sunday, Sept. 18, Hurricane Fiona made landfall in southwest Puerto Rico as a Category 1 hurricane. Initial damage from strong winds knocked out power to most of the island. Extreme rainfall from the slow-moving storm poses a significant flood threat. Week of Compassion is in conversation with our partners through the Iglesia Cristiana (Discipulos de Cristo) and Puerto Rico VOAD about developing needs. The impact of this storm complicates the ongoing recoveries from Hurricanes Irma and Maria (2017) and the 2020 earthquakes.
