A clean-up operation is underway in resorts in the Dominican Republic today after Hurricane Fiona slammed into the Caribbean island, leaving more than 12,000 homeless.

Resorts in the Dominican Republic that sustained the most damage include La Romana, Punta Cana and Samaná.

However, Sabrina Cambiaso, the Director of Dominican Repubic Tourist Board in the UK said damage caused by the category three storm in holiday resorts was ‘primarily to landscape’.

TUI said none of its properties or clients were affected by the hurricane, which brought gusts of up to 155mph to several Caribbean islands, causing flooding and wind damage.

Puerto Rico and Grand Turk in the Turks and Caicos Islands were also hit and at least seven people were killed. In Puerto Rico, there was a nationwide blackout and landslides.

The hurricane, which is heading north towards the east coast of Canada, has caused several cruise lines to adjust their Caribbean itineraries.
