Hurricane Fiona

Hurricane Fiona is a currently active hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean which made landfall in Guadeloupe, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. The sixth named storm and third hurricane of the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season, Fiona developed from a tropical wave that emerged from West Africa, before developing into a tropical depression east of the Leeward Islands on September 14. On September 15, even though dry air and moderate to strong wind shear impacted the system, it was assigned the name Fiona. On September 16, it passed Guadeloupe as it entered the Caribbean Sea, and strengthened into a hurricane as it approached Puerto Rico two days later. A few hours afterwards, the eye of Fiona made landfall along the southwestern coast of Puerto Rico near Punta Tocon between the municipalities of Lajas and Cabo Rojo at 3:20 p.m. AST on September 18, according to the National Hurricane Center.
