The entire island of Puerto Rico was without power on Sunday as Hurricane Fiona made landfall and threatened to cause "catastrophic flooding" and landslides.

The storm made landfall with maximum sustained winds of over 85 miles per hour. U.S. President Joe Biden declared a state of emergency Sunday.

Schools across Puerto Rico remained closed on Wednesday as more than a half-million people remained without electricity after the island's worst earthquake in a century. Some Puerto Ricans in the hard-hit south area of the island in towns such as Guanica moved beds outside Tuesday night over concerns their homes would collapse if another earthquake hit. The flurry of quakes in Puerto Rico's southern region began the night of Dec. 28. “There's no power". "There's no water". "There is nothing". "This is horrible".
