Hurricane Maria is dumping three feet of water on Puerto Rico. It’s taken out much of the power on the island. San Juan International is closed today, hopefully re-opening tomorrow but we’ll learn more soon. That seems optimistic. Other airports are closed too.
Via Points Fitness here’s video of San Juan airport during the hurricane.
He also shares video he describes as United staff assessing the damage to San Juan’s terminal B.
Massive water filtration through the roof has caused essentially terminals B1-B11 to be covered in water aside from broken glass windows.
It’s going to be a long way to recovery for the island. Nothing like this has ever happened, and not just power, but communications in general are terrible.
Hopefully Ricardo, the blogger at Points Fitness, is able to reach the members of his family on the island that he hasn’t yet been in contact with.
