On September 18, Hurricane Fiona slammed into Puerto Rico.

Though Fiona’s intensity didn’t surpass category 1, its slow-moving rains still packed a punch.

The entire island was without power on September 18, and residents are still dealing with historic floods and a lack of running water days later.
