Despite its low category rating when it struck Puerto Rico, Hurricane Fiona has caused catastrophic damage to parts of the island. In some communities, the flooding caused more destruction than Category 4 Hurricane Maria.
“These houses had about 6 feet of water in them at one point, and most things inside were destroyed,” said Convoy of Hope team member Clayton Gilligan. “And this was only about 20 minutes outside [the capital] San Juan.”
Convoy of Hope is working feverishly to get supplies to those who need them most. Small-scale distributions in the north have already begun. Larger scale distributions in southern Puerto Rico were scheduled over the weekend.
