The Hurricane

Hurricane Maria made its first landfall on the Caribbean island nation of Dominica on Monday, September 18, as a Category 5 storm with winds topping 160 mph - the strongest hurricane on record to make landfall there. Days later, the storm devastated the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico. Maria is the first Category 4 hurricane to directly impact Puerto Rico in 85 years.
