PUERTO RICO — Hurricane Fiona is moving across the Dominican Republic and still dumping rain all over Puerto Rico early Monday.
Channel 9 has been monitoring the storm all weekend as people on the islands brace for the wind and rain.
After much of the power was down in Puerto Rico after the storm made landfall, a utility company says it was able to restore power to about 76,000 customers so far.
There are new images coming out of Puerto Rico showing the storm damage.
Thousands of Puerto Ricans call Central Florida home, and many are waiting for updates from their loved ones.
Hurricane Fiona made landfall Sunday afternoon along Puerto Rico’s southwestern coast as a Category 1.
The storm brought sustained winds of 85 mph and caused catastrophic flooding.
At one point, Puerto Rico’s entire power grid was knocked out, resulting in an island-wide blackout.
Channel 9 will continue to monitor the damage from Hurricane Fiona and will provide continuing coverage on Eyewitness News.
