Puerto Rico...20 Months After Hurricane Maria

Jun 12, 2019

Efforts are underway to prepare Puerto Rico for another hurricane season. Hurricane Maria devastated the island almost two years ago, forcing many families to relocate to our region. Since then it’s been a struggle for the island to recover and secure federal aid. What happened to those families and how is Puerto Rico recovering? Our guests:
