Hours after Irma’s winds subsided (close to midnight) I went out to explore and help in any way I could. Packing knowledge from years of offroading and rescue, I ventured outside in my truck “La Manati” and found the road infront of my neighborhood blocked by trees which we then proceeded to remove by using a snatch rope and some tree savers.
Maria was a giganic and powerful hurricane that touched down on September 20th, 2017 after ravaging islands across the eastern caribbean. Maria came just two weeks after Irma (strongest hurricane in Atlantic history) with winds up to 200+ mph. It swept across the caribbean, narrowly missing us (like Hugo) and devastating Florida. It took us 12 days to get electricity back in my house (we where lucky), just in time to “prepare” for Maria. Some people, till the day of publication, still don’t have electricity since Irma (~60% with electricity).
Update: January 31, 2018: 70% with electricity
