Powerful Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico early Wednesday.
Beyond Puerto Rico, Maria will have a direct hit on parts of the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos to end the week.
Beyond the Caribbean, Maria will take a path similar to Jose in the short term, but may still be a concern for part of the eastern United States, Atlantic Canada and Bermuda.
Financial and physical tolls on people can be measured, but what about the mental and emotional toll?
Jose has been unleashing coastal flooding, beach erosion, gusty winds and rain to the mid-Atlantic and New England coasts.
Impacts from Maria are expected to far surpass those of Irma in Puerto Rico as major Hurricane Maria continues to rip a path of destruction over the islands of the northeastern Caribbean Sea through Wednesday.
During a time which some viewed as a chance to assist those afflicted by Harvey and Irma’s devastating blows, criminals spotted a perfect opportunity to take advantage of a vulnerable situation.
