Puerto Rico faces cleanup crises
More than a month after Hurricane Maria lashed the U.S. territory, cleanup efforts were still crawling, with power slowly returning to the island.
Residents faced debris buildup in the streets, and many fear a looming environmental catastrophe with the lack of reliable clean water and landfills filled to capacity. The storm has exacerbated the island’s long-running energy and financial crises.
Also, only 90 schools — 9 percent of the total number on the island — opened this week.
