Abstract

After Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in 2017, millions of Puerto Ricans were left without power for almost a year. As a result, communication, access to water, electricity, and medical devices were abruptly taken from communities causing multiple effects on the surrounding populations. When a natural disaster strikes, electrical grids are completely demolished, leaving Puerto Rico with no source of power. Multiple problems arise dealing with powering medical devices, telephones for communication, and lights in individual buildings.
