Hi there,

This week Democracy Now! is bringing you live, on-the-ground coverage of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where you’ll hear the voices and analysis you won’t get anywhere else. In August, we’ll travel to Chicago for the Democratic National Convention. Democracy Now! doesn’t accept corporate advertising or sponsorship revenue, and we don’t take money from any government. That means we’re relying on you. Can you donate $15 to Democracy Now! today to support our RNC and DNC coverage—and so much more? Right now, a generous donor will TRIPLE your gift, which means your $15 donation is worth $45. Please do your part to help us air in-depth, substantive coverage of the conventions and the issues that matter most during the 2024 election cycle. Thank you so much—and remember, every dollar makes a difference.

Hurricane Fiona Hits Dominican Republic; Puerto Rico Remains Without Power and Tap Water

HeadlineSep 20, 2022

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.
