The category one storm ravaged Puerto Rico, nearly five years to the day Hurricane Maria, a category five storm hit the island.  But officials there say Fiona’s flooding is worse.

The island-wide blackout caused Cristian Ortiz and his wife Crystal to temporarily move into a hotel.

Cristian works for DeSales Media Group, parent company of Currents News. He was in Puerto Rico during Maria and says the slight improvements to the infrastructure since then didn’t hold up.
