Hurricane Maria was the strongest hurricane to make landfall in Puerto Rico since 1928. As of October 8, the hurricane has caused at least 81 deaths: 36 in Puerto Rico, 30 in Dominica, 5 in the Dominican Republic, 4 in the contiguous United States, 3 in Haiti, 2 in Guadeloupe, and 1 in the United States Virgin Islands. Puerto Rico has suffered catastrophic damage, including destruction of its previously damaged electrical grid. On October 6, a little more than two weeks after the hurricane, 89% still had no power in Puerto Rico, 44% had no water service, and 58% had no cell service.
