About "Hurricane Maria"
“I’m 54 years old and I’ve never seen devastation like this. The human spirit is going to have to rise up real high. I’m sure we have the strength to do it, but we’re going to need to find it within ourselves.” – Carmen Cruz, mayor of San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico.
This week, Hurricane Maria struck the island of Puerto Rico with unrelenting force. Puerto Rico is in dire straits. The electricity grid on the entire island has been destroyed leaving the 3.4 million people entirely powerless. With massive debt and a bankruptcy crisis, the island has a long road to walk in recovery.
