Ruby Ro­driguez, 8, looks back at her mother as she wades across the San Lorenzo Moro­vis river in Puerto Rico. The bridge was swept away by Hur­ri­cane Maria. On 20 Septem­ber, Puerto Rico was slammed by a pow­er­ful cat­e­gory 4 storm, the strong­est to make land­fall on the Car­ribean is­land in 85 years. The US ter­ri­tory is now suf­fer­ing from a lack of elec­tric­ity, wa­ter and fuel, and has lim­ited cell phone ser­vice. “Puerto Rico, in terms of the in­fra­struc­ture, will not be the same... This is some­thing of his­toric pro­por­tions,” said Car­los Mer­cader, a spokesman for the is­land’s gover­nor.
