Puerto Rico: As many may know, Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico on September 16, 2017 through October 2nd, 2017. Hurricane Maria was a category 5, which is known to be one of the worst natural disasters to ever occur in Puerto Rico.

This left Puerto Rico with no power, thousands of families without homes and destroyed communities. Now two years later, as Puerto Rico has been trying to recover from the hurricane, life was improving with trying to rebuild homes.

It was steadily recovering until a 6.4 earthquake struck Puerto Rico on January 7th, 2020. This earthquake caused dozens of families to be homeless and others to sleep in tents outside their homes. With 50 homes destroyed and about 100 of them hanging on the edge, all in the hope that their homes won’t collapse.

Hurricane Maria and the earthquake have left people numb and restless with no motivation of moving on, but many people are willing to survive this natural disaster and push through.
