One month later

A man is in his kitchen when water rushes through the door, nearly drowning him. A mother is unable to reach her son in prison, and is desperate to know whether or not he’s doing ok. Another man, who requires electricity to power the ventilator that keeps him alive, struggles to find a generator to plug into after the power grid fails. Latino USA producer Andrés Caballero visits Puerto Rico to record stories of surviving Hurricane Maria—and the devastating consequences of the storm.

Reporting from Puerto Rico is part of a special investigative project on the impact of Hurricane Maria, thanks to support by the Ford Foundation.
