About

On Sept. 20, 2017, Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico as a Category 4 storm. It moved slowly over the area, knocking power out to the entire island, killing more than 50 people and leaving historic devastation in its wake. Families lost everything they owned: their homes, their businesses, their legacies. But they held onto their faith. They held onto their courage.

Watch News 4 at 11 p.m. for the latest on the recovery effort, with updates from Gaby Acevedo, the tri-state's only dedicated San Juan-based reporter.
