(Bloomberg) – Hurricane Fiona, which left catastrophic flooding and a wrecked power grid across Puerto Rico, is now raking the eastern Dominican Republic as it rips through the Caribbean.

Fiona’s top winds dropped to 85 miles per hour, down from 90 mph earlier, as it moved back into the Atlantic, the US National Hurricane Center said Monday in an 11 a.m. advisory. The storm will regain strength as it moves over the warm ocean water.
