The latest hurricane (yes, it felt bizarre to type that), Hurricane Maria, has tore through Puerto Rico, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. Many have been left without power and it could be months before it is restored. Per Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch:
Hurricane Maria buzzsawed over Puerto Rico and its most populated areas, causing “catastrophic” and “life-threatening” flooding, the National Hurricane Center said. More than 3 million U.S. citizens who live on the island have been without power and could be for months, and areas of the U.S. territory received more than 37 inches of rain, according to the National Weather Service.
To help aid in the relief efforts Yadier Molina and his wife, Wanda, have established a GoFundMe page with the goal of raising $1 million. Per Goold:
In addition to raising money, Molina also intends to direct money he has put into his foundation for relief and rebuilding efforts.
