Hurricane Fiona has unleashed heavy rain on the Dominican Republic, causing extreme flooding.

The storm has displaced more than 12,400 people and cut off at least two communities. So far, there has been one death caused by a falling tree.

Authorities closed ports and beaches; a tourist pier in the town of Miches was badly damaged by high waves. At least four international airports were closed.
