Hurricane Fiona roared over the Dominican Republic on Monday, a day after knocking out power to all of Puerto Rico and causing damage the governor described as “catastrophic.” Many people were also left without water service.

Hundreds of people were evacuated or rescued across the island as floodwaters rose swiftly. The wind and water from Fiona stripped the pavement from roads, tore off roofs and sent torrents pouring into homes. The storm also took out a bridge and flooded an airport runway.

Here are some photos of the devastation Hurricane Fiona has caused in Puerto Rico.
