Hurricane María was the second deadliest storm in U.S history, causing 2,975 deaths and causing $90 billion in damage on the island.
Together with hurricane Irma, which struck three weeks earlier, Puerto Rico’s infrastructure was thoroughly devastated:
100% of the power grid was taken offline, with power finally being restored to 100% of the population 10 months later
80% of the population was cut off from clean water service
80% of all crops were destroyed
