What do you think this On The Night Watch In Post-Hurricane Puerto Rico (HBO) video?
Hurricane Maria brought everyday life in Puerto Rico to a standstill — destroying roads, cutting off water, and turning the lights out on 3.4 million people. Nearly two weeks later, there have been some signs of progress – most of the island’s gas stations are open, and its main highway is clear. But about half of Puerto Rico’s residents still don’t have running water, and almost the entire island is without power.
On top of everything else, Puerto Rico is also struggling to keep order in the post-hurricane chaos. Cops in Puerto Rico have been working 12 hour shifts, with almost no days off. Many of them patrol the night, after the island-wide curfew kicks in and the streets go dark.
