Puerto Ricans scramble for food and water 3 weeks after Maria
Food shortages are among the myriad challenges facing Puerto Rico’s 3.4 million residents in Maria’s aftermath.
Power outages and a shortage of drinking water have plagued the US commonwealth as well. Many communities remain cut off from the world, with no cell phone service and roads blocked.
Eighty-three percent of Puerto Ricans are without power. That means no Internet, no way to get cell phones working, and limited ways to communicate or get information.
