Historias de las tormentas

February 26, 2018
Visit bit.ly/0218LasHistorias to see and hear the Talking Pictures video, produced in Puerto Rico, in February 2018

Talking Pictures visited Puerto Rico in February 2018, with residents there, survivors of two of the historically most intense hurricanes in the past 60 years, las tormentas Irma, on Sept. 7, 2017, and Maria, on Sept. 20, 2017. While recovery is well underway, there are still parts of the island without electricity or running water. Even in the capital, San Juan, electrical power remains unstable in places. Outside the cities, the countryside and the economy remains devastated, most especially the agricultural sector. Despite the problems, Puerto Rican people remain hopeful, upbeat and friendly, ready to celebrate the miracle of survival on a stricken island.
