Hurricane Maria Puerto Rico Photos: Must-See Videos & Pictures

Hurricane Maria hit the island of Puerto Rico this Wednesday, causing an incredible amount of damage and flooding. This Category 4 storm reportedly knocked out all the power in the island of Puerto Rico. The entire island has reportedly been left in the dark because of Maria. Puerto Rico’s Governor Ricardo Rossello says a “new Puerto Rico” will need to be built.

Latest Update: Puerto Rico has an official death toll of 62 as a direct result of Hurricane Maria. According to a report from The New York Times, as many as 1,052 may have died from the hurricane.

Update (9/21/17, 1:43 P.M. EST): After falling down a Category 2 storm, Maria restrengthened to Category 3 status Thursday morning. So far, Maria has left 18 people dead. On Thursday, Maria hit the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic, and is traveling in the direction of the Turks and Caicos and the southeastern Bahamas.

Throughout the island, a curfew has been set from 6 A.M. to 6 P.M., effective Wednesday to Saturday.

People living in Puerto Rico have been calling up radio stations, reporting Maria’s destruction. Doors are reportedly flying off hinges, while a water tank flew away in the southern region of the island. Widespread flooding has also been reported, particularly in San Juan, with water reportedly running down one apartment’s interior staircase.
