Hi there,

Can you donate $10 per month to support Democracy Now!’s independent journalism all year long? Since our very first broadcast in 1996, we’ve refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. When Democracy Now! covers war and peace or the climate crisis, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers or the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. When we cover healthcare, we’re not brought to you by the insurance industry or Big Pharma. Our journalism is powered by YOU. But that means we can’t do our work without you.Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $10 donation this month will be worth $20 to Democracy Now! Please do your part today. Every dollar counts. Thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

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.
