Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017 with sustained winds of 155mph (Category 4). The strongest storm to hit my country since 1928.
After one month, Puerto Rico is still in an emergency state. According to The Weather Channel, around 88% of the population doesn't have power at their homes and 1 million of the 3.4 million people who live here doesn't have potable water service. The goverment's death toll is 48, but we keep hearing the total could be hundreds. For example: people who didn't received medical attention at the right time as consequence of the telecommunications colapse. In my case, I didn't have cellphone service at my house until October 6. This problem hasn't been resolved at all; some areas doesn't have mobile network services.
We don't lose hope. We'll stand up again. We are fighters.
