In 2017, Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico. The country was devastated, and it took many months to recover. It hit as a Category 4 storm and caused over 62,000 people to go without power. Seven months after the storm hit, 96% of residents had their power restored, but there were still 4% without power. The death toll tallied at 64 people, but there were more than 4,000 possible deaths from the storm and its aftermath, since many people went missing and were unaccounted for (World Vision).
