(NEW YORK) — Residents in the mountain municipality of Morovis, Puerto Rico are still experiencing the intense effects of Hurricane Maria.

In the community of San Lorenzo within Morovis, people were severely affected when a crucial bridge linking them to the rest of the island was washed away during the storm and some have been without electricity for more than 100 days.

Maria slammed through the U.S. territory on September 20. Puerto Rico’s Department of Public Safety has attributed 64 deaths to the hurricane. However, the official tally has come under scrutiny from the New York Times and others. This has prompted the Puerto Rico’s governor to order a review and inspection of all the deaths that have taken place since Maria.
