Rep. Luis Gutiérrez on Category 5 Hurricane Maria Barreling Toward Puerto Rico

19 September 2017 - 8:00am

In the Caribbean, Hurricane Maria strengthened rapidly Monday over the warm waters of the Atlantic, growing from a Category 1 to a Category 5 storm in a single day and threatening Puerto Rico and other islands already suffering from Hurricane Irma's landfall earlier this month. On Monday evening, the storm's eye passed directly over Dominica, where Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit wrote online, "My roof is gone. I am at the complete mercy of the hurricane. House is flooding." He later said he had been rescued, but that the island had been devastated. The storm also brought high winds and flooding to Guadeloupe, the staging ground for relief efforts for islands ravaged by Hurricane Irma. Maria now threatens the capital of Puerto Rico, San Juan, with a possible direct hit as a major hurricane. For more, we speak with Democratic Congressmember Luis Gutiérrez.
