Hurricane Maria was downgraded overnight to a strong category 4 as it lashes at the Caribbean. Puerto Rico is bracing for a direct hit today. The National Hurricane Center says some parts of Puerto Rico may be uninhabitable for weeks. Meanwhile, the death toll continues to climb after a powerful earthquake hit Mexico. More than 200 people are dead. The earthquake was a magnitude 7.1 and scores of buildings were destroyed. The Mexican stock exchange is closed and the Mexico City airport is shut down. FedEx (FDX)  says its profits fell 17% and it's blaming the cyberattack. A hack at its TNT Express in June caused shipping delays in Europe.
