¿QPM? S2 EP 2: Huracán Maria changed my family's life.

After not being able to talk to my family for six days, my mom finally called me from the Island. Hurricane Maria had just passed and she couldn't believe was she was seeing. I didn't know what had happened during that time so she started sending me pictures of what I thought was another country. I grew up in Puerto Rico; in these streets and I couldn't recognize any of them. My mom and sister came to stay with me in the Midwest after the hurricane and talked to me about their experience.

A Harvard study estimated that 4,645 people died in Puerto Rico because of Hurricane Maria. The Twitter hashtag #4645boricuas was a voice to some about this tragedy.

Norma Marizán, my mom, drives through our neighborhood in San Juan after the hurricane.

Norma Marizán talks to local employees at Old San Juan after the hurricane. They say they're leaving the Island shortly.

Talking to Esperanza in the Fernandez Juncos Ave. after she lost almost everything during the hurricane.

Amidst Hurricane Maria, the Island of Puerto Rico lost power so many had to become creative with cooking and using fire. Here, Norma Marizán makes soup using olive oil and paper to ignite the fire.
