Virmisa Rivera holds an envelope with the amount of money she was given to repair her hurricane-damaged home in Loiza, Puerto Rico, Thursday, Sept. 15, 2022. She said FEMA also gave her $1,600 to rent a house while they repaired her roof, but no crews came by. The government said it would move her to a new home in another neighborhood since they can’t repair hers because it’s in a flood zone. (AP Photo/Alejandro Granadillo)

Puerto Rico Historic Church

An architectural detail once used by the Romans can be seen from the roof of the second oldest Spanish church in the Americas, the San Jose Church, that will officially reopen following a massive reconstruction that took nearly two decades to complete, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Tuesday, March 9, 2021. The renovation was halted only three times in nearly 20 years: briefly after 2017's Hurricane Maria, during last year’s pandemic lockdown and in 2008, when the lime supplier temporarily ran out of material.

Puerto Rico - Informal Addresses

A small, rusty sign identifies Antonia Diaz street in the Cañabón neighborhood of Caguas, Puerto Rico, Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2020. More than half of all homes in Puerto Rico lack a physical address, so the absence of street names and numbers also have created multiple problems ranging from ambulances unable to reach a home in time to a delay in the distribution of aid after Hurricane Maria and a string of recent earthquakes.
