Irma affected 13 of Cuba’s 15 provinces and left a dozen dead. It also exposed the island’s Achilles’ heel: ageing and fragile housing.

Puerto Rico: Their neighbors fled, but these Puerto Ricans see a future on the island
Hurricane Maria left a path of death and destruction in Puerto Rico. At least 64 people died because of the storm, according to official statistics, though independent investigations suggest that number could be as high as 1,000. It also initiated a new exodus of Puerto Ricans to the United States. With a U.S. passport in hand, tens of thousands of Puerto Ricans showed up to airports and ports around the island with the intention of leaving, uncertain how long they’d be gone. Would it be temporary or permanent? Only time would tell. But many of those who stayed did so to help the country get back on its feet. These are some of their stories.
