Acts of violence against protesters, a 13-0 victory in the World Cup and more made headlines.
It’s been more than a year since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, so why are street lights still out and why are there houses without roofs?
The storm caused nearly 3,000 deaths and billions of dollars in damage to the island. NPR’s Adrian Florido has been in Puerto Rico as people have tried to rebuild.
He joins us as we check-in on the island — what progress has been made? What’s left to do? And exactly how much help is coming from the federal government?
Produced by Amanda Williams.
