Hurricane Fiona Swipes Bermuda, Barrels Toward Canada’s East Coast

HeadlineSep 23, 2022

Hurricane Fiona has swept past Bermuda after strengthening to a powerful Category 4 hurricane. Overnight the storm brought high winds and heavy rain to the British territory as its eye passed about 200 miles west of the archipelago. Fiona is now heading north and expected to slam into Canada’s eastern coast on Saturday as a large and powerful post-tropical cyclone with hurricane-force winds.

Meanwhile, most of Puerto Rico remains without power and clean drinking water five days after Fiona overwhelmed the island’s fragile electrical grid. President Biden on Wednesday declared a major disaster in Puerto Rico. Meanwhile, a sweltering heat wave pushed heat indexes in some parts of the island above 110 degrees Fahrenheit on Thursday.
