The Fed meeting kicks off Tuesday, and its rate announcement is slated for Wednesday 11 am PT.

Hurricane Fiona, striking on the 33rd anniversary of Hurricane Hugo, tore through Puerto Rico, leaving behind wide swaths of devastation and knocking out power to the whole island. Biden declared a state of emergency as the island’s authorities assess the disaster. Meteorologists said there is more torrential rain to come, even as the storm moves toward the Dominican Republic. It’s unclear when Puerto Rico’s power grid will be back up, conjuring memories of 2017, when Hurricane Maria knocked out power, leaving some neighborhoods without electricity for a year.
