Hurricane Maria has caused 100 percent of Puerto Rico to lose power.
As of early Thursday morning, Maria regained strength and is a Category 3 hurricane near the eastern Dominican Republic.
It could take months for power to be restored, and anyone who has power on the island is using a generator, according to reports.
Maria is not a threat to the mainland U.S., according to the storm’s latest track. Maria is expected to curve back out to sea by the weekend, but there will be plenty to track.
Maria became the fourth major hurricane of the 2017 Atlantic season on Monday. Maria is the second storm in the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season to become a Category 5 storm.
Several islands were already severally damaged from Hurricane Irma. Rain totals could reach as high as 20 inches in some of those spots producing life threatening flash flooding and mudslides. Hurricane and tropical storm force winds extend out from the center of the storm.
On Monday, there were three active named storms in the Atlantic for the second time this season. Tropical Depression Lee was also active.
