Photos: Puerto Rico Four Years After Hurricane Maria

The effects of Hurricane Maria, a deadly Category 4 hurricane that swept Puerto Rico four years ago, left the island shaken. A series of earthquakes then rattled Puerto Rico, leaving many islanders who most need help still waiting and hoping for some sense of a normal life. Community leaders, neighbors and nonprofit groups are still scrambling for donations of food, clothing and money to keep the people of Puerto Rico going. Delays, lost documents and finding proof of property ownership have left homes in shambles with seemingly no hope of being rebuilt. Some people are starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel and are slowly finding their way back to their Puerto Rico.
