“We are 100% without power,” said a spokeswoman for the Puerto Rico State Agency for Emergency and Disaster Management. Authorities have even confirmed the storm has cut off all landlines as well. The Governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rossello himself took to Twitter to let the world know the state of the island. “The danger continues – there is a flood warning for ALL Puerto Rico. Stay in safe places,” said the official. Although over 500 shelters were set up to protect and secure the island natives, the natural disaster took the lives of seven people on the island of Dominica. With wind speeds as high as 160 mph, Maria is said to be picking up strength as it reaches the Islands of the Caribbean.
