The storm immediately knocked out the region’s:
. . . . . . entire power grid,
. . . . . . much of its communications networks, and
. . . . . . large stretches of road,
. . . making it impossible for the territory’s central government,
. . . to assess the damage.

But the scale of the second hurricane’s devastation across Puerto Rico,
. . . is rapidly becoming clear, with many towns across the territory totally destroyed.

Leaders, and Representatives from more than
. . . 50 municipalities gathered in the capital of San Juan,
. . . to relay tales of the damage, which was so severe,
. . . that government officials had still not heard from an additional
. . . 20 mayors.

The mayors reported, residents cannot even acquire food or water, and
. . . looting has begun in some areas.
. . . “Hysteria is starting to spread.
. . . The hospital is about to collapse. It’s at capacity,”
. . . Mayor Jose Sanchez Gonzalez of the northern town of Manati
. . . said while crying, per the Associated Press.
. . . “We need someone to help us immediately.”

Maria's Path of Destruction Across Puerto Rico, and
. . . the US Virgin Islands Is Heartbreaking.
