Update from rincon. Hope u r well gusty and cyclone. We took some larger winds than expected on this side because of the wobble west that happened at the wrong time. Still obviously are without power, water etc. Gasoline is a big challenge. It will be a long road back but we are all helping each other through it and Puerto Rico will be back stronger than ever. Lots of destruction with Maria but we are safe and we were lucky ones that had roof stay on our wood house. Many areas of Puerto Rico need pressing help still up in the mountains. Communications huge challenge. May be able to get more out as comms come up.

Thanks for checking in. We have not heard from Luis yet, hoping it's just a communication issue.

Looking out to hear from Luis too. I hope it is just communication problems. I know after Irma, it was about 3 weeks before we could communicate well here on St Maarten.

I heard from my dad for the second time today, he is in Salinas (Coqui) PR. He had to drive to San Juan with my cousin to get money out of the bank. He had nothing left, he was also able to get cell service by driving out there. He said PR is in really bad shape. There is still quite a bit of family we haven't heard from. My husband and I are headed down there in 3 weeks, I got my tickets today. This is so heartbreaking seeing and hearing what is happening on the island. I hope everyone has checked in. Hopefully Luis will check in soon, I don't know where in San Juan he lived but I do know from what I have heard from family that PR is a disaster.
