CNN reports that the powerful storm has already devastated Puerto Rico, leaving the vast majority of its 3.1 million residents without power.

In the Dominican Republic, over a million people were left without running water.

According to the country's emergency management director of operations, nearly 800 people were rescued by emergency workers.

Following the storm, at least 519 people were taking refuge in the country's 29 shelters.

Early on September 20, Fiona strengthened to a major Category 3 hurricane with sustained winds over 111 miles per hour.

The Miami-based National Hurricane Center said that "life-threatening flooding" was possible through the afternoon in the Turks and Caicos islands.

Forecasters have predicted that Fiona could strengthen to a Category 4 storm with sustained winds of 130 to 156 miles per hour by early September 21
