Hurricane Fiona, Caribbean, September 2022Heavy rain and strong winds brought by Tropical Storm Fiona caused damage in the island group of Guadeloupe from 16 September 2022. One person died after floods from the overflowing Rivière des Pères in Basse-Terre destroyed a house. Flooding was also reported in Capesterre-Belle-Eau, Sainte-Rose, Baillif and Vieux-Habitants. Around 50 people were evacuated. Emergency services carried out 151 interventions. Thousands were left without electricity. Fiona strengthened into a hurricane early 18 September 2022. President Biden approved an emergency declaration for Puerto Rico as Fiona headed toward the island. The National Hurricane Center said Fiona could produce 300 mm to 400 mm of rain, possibly up to 600 mm over portions of Puerto Rico. These rains were forecast to pose an extreme life-threatening flooding risk, especially over southern and eastern portions of the island.Sun 18 Sep 2022FloodList provided by Copernicus GloFAS
