Puerto Rico Is Completely Without Power Because of Hurricane Maria

A roundup of what we've learned through social media.

As Hurricane Maria bears down on Puerto Rico, the island's 3.4 million residents are now entirely without power. Catastrophic winds raging at 155 miles per hour are ripping off roofs, destroying walls and there is extreme flooding. Although Hurricane Maria was downgraded from a category 4 to a category 3 storm after it made landfall, the destruction is still incomprehensible and there's more to come.
