In the Caribbean, Hurricane Faiona has strengthened into a “major” Category 3 storm, taking aim at Turks and Caicos after it pummeled the Dominican Republic on Monday. So far, most of the storm’s destruction is in Puerto Rico, where nearly all of the island remains without power as of this morning. Officials say it could be days before a majority of customers have service restored. Meanwhile, an estimated two-thirds of Puerto Rican households have no access to clean tap water, after Hurricane Fiona flooded water filtration and sewage treatment plants. After headlines, we’ll get an update with Democracy Now!’s Juan Gonzalez.
