One Year Out From Hurricane Maria, Full Recovery Still ElusivePlay
Thursday marked the anniversary of when Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico.
The powerful and deadly storm damaged hundreds of thousands of homes and knocked out power across the island for months.
According to the Puerto Rican government, the updated death toll is just shy of 3,000, making it one of the deadliest storms in U.S. history.
