Once again, Puerto Rico is facing another catastrophic storm just after the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Maria.

This time, Hurricane Fiona has caused a power outage for millions of people across the island. The hurricane hit Puerto Rico this weekend as a Category 1 storm with sustained winds of 90 mph, for CNN, and continues to bring a downpour even as it makes its way across the Atlantic to the Dominican Republic. Up to 22 inches of rain has fallen on the island, causing life-threatening flooding, and up to 15 inches can still fall even as the hurricane moves away.

There is currently a death charge, according to the New York Timesalthough it may still be too early to know the full extent of the damage.

“In many areas that have never seen flooding, there has been an unprecedented accumulation of water,” said Gov. Pedro Pierluisi. “In fact, in many areas it was larger than what we saw during Hurricane Maria.”
