Hurricane Maria

Light Up Puerto Rico

 

  It’s been six months since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico. The hurricane is regarded as one of the worst natural disasters in Puerto Rican history. Some Puerto Ricans expressed the worry at the time that the news cycle would turn and the island’s needs will be forgotten. We’ll try to counteract that tendency today. We’re going to focus on Puerto Rico and try to point you to good ways you can help. We’ll also seek context and look at some history.

Four months after Hurrican Maria, much of Puerto Rico still has basic needs like light and clean water going unmet. Utah volunteers are trying to change that.

After FEMA was mistakenly reported to being pulling aid from Puerto Rico, several organizations, including those in Utah, are reminding Americans that much of the island is still without power and clean water.
