On the one-month anniversary of Hurricane María slamming through Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands, NPR’s Latino USA produced an special one-hour episode with original reporting from the island. In SURVIVING THE STORM, producer Andrés Caballero visits Puerto Rico to record stories of surviving the hurricane—and the devastating consequences of the storm. We meet a multitude of characters: from the man who escaped death after water rushed through the door to the mother unable to reach her son in prison to the young man who requires electricity to power the ventilator that keeps him alive.
