Hurricane Maria left the island of Puerto Rico devastated from end to end.
Today, more than 10 months since the hurricane, regions of the island are still without power, particularly in remote mountianous regions, such as Jayuya and Adjuntas, located in the center of the island.
The island’s utility grid was damaged during the hurricane; thousands of homes were partially or completely destroyed in the hurricane of the century.
Leaving total devastation in its path, it will take many years for Puerto Rico's full recovery.
Power may take another 6 - 8 months to be restored in regions still without power, ; in the mountainous regions, power may not be restored for another 12 - 14 months. Regions are still without water.
There is still strong support needed in regions throughout the island. .
