Puerto Rico is suffering its history’s biggest natural disaster. While still recovering from Hurricane Irma two weeks prior, Hurricane Maria completely destroyed the island’s power grid, leaving all 3.4 million residents without electricity for an indefinite period of time. Communication networks are crippled across the island, approximately 80 percent of the territory’s agriculture is lost due to the hurricane, and less than half the population have potable water now. Puerto Ricans are in urgent need of clean drinking water and food, or things will get worse soon.
