Puerto Rican volunteers from Florida place newly arrived tarps over hurricane-ravaged roofs in a barrio of Toa Baja.

WLRN's Americas Editor Tim Padgett traveled to Puerto Rico one month after Hurricane Maria hit the island as a powerful category 4 storm, knocking down the electrical grid and destroying most of the infrastructure.

Padgett's reporting took him to different locations around the island, where he was able to observe first-hand the daily struggles of residents after Hurricane Maria wiped out most basic services on September 20, 2017. 

You can follow along Padgett's trip on this interactive map. Clicking on the arrow on the right side will take you on the different stops along the way. For each, you will see a map of the location and photos of some of the Puerto Ricans that shared their stories with our reporter.
