SEPTEMBER 20, 2017
Generators are still humming.
Candles are still flickering.
Homes are still being repaired.
Puerto Rico was hit by Hurricane María exactly six months ago today and the U.S. territory is still struggling to recover from the strongest storm to hit the island in nearly a century.
Hurricane María is regarded as the worst natural disaster on record in Puerto Rico.
The tenth-most intense Atlantic hurricane on record and the most intense tropical cyclone worldwide of 2017, María was the thirteenth named storm, eighth consecutive hurricane, fourth major hurricane, second Category 5 hurricane, and the deadliest storm of the hyperactive 2017 Atlantic hurricane season.

On the 6 month anniversary of hurricane María, hundreds of Puerto Rican families displaced by the hurricane and allies from across the country will travel to Washington DC to demand a more decisive and urgent action from the White House and Congress to respond to the continuing humanitarian crisis.
Puerto Rico and our families demand a Just Recovery!
