Life after hurricane María means to do long lines of more of 8 hours with the hope of having some diesel or gasoline.

On Wednesday, September 20th, 2017, Puerto Rico was hit with one of the strongest hurricanes to ever pass through the Caribbean. Creating a major humanitarian crisis for this US territory. Thousands of people lost their houses, the entire island was without electricity, more than half of the population was without water, and 95% of the island was without cellphone service.
After 3 months of Hurricane Maria Puertoricans have to live with a new reality. It is difficult to know how many people have electrical power today but it is estimated that less than 50% of the island has electricity. Simple things like going to the supermarket, buying gasoline, finding water, buying ice, going to work or school are a few of today challenges to overcome. Life after Maria represents a new challenge every day for Puertoricans and ways to find a solution seems to be almost inexistent.
