George Haddow, a senior fellow at Tulane University’s Disaster Resilience Leadership Academy, explains how new information can help inform Puerto Rico’s rebuilding efforts after Hurricane Maria, which devastated the island on September 20, 2017, and caused widespread destruction and plunged the island into a months-long blackout. According to Haddow, the higher death count is key to rebuilding Puerto Rico to stand against powerful storms.
