MOROVIS, PUERTO RICO - DECEMBER 20:  A resident, whose home remains without electricity, watches as debris is removed on December 20, 2017 in Morovis, Puerto Rico. Barely three months after Hurricane Maria made landfall, approximately one-third of the devastated island is still without electricity and 14 percent lack running water. While the official death toll from the massive storm remains at 64, The New York Times recently reported the actual toll for the storm and its aftermath likely stands at more than 1,000.

The family, including two sons of Santiago, live in home made with the scraps of what was left after hurricane Maria flattened the house at a hill top of Corozal. Almost six months after hurricane Maria ravaged the island over 200 thousand people remain without power. Some recent deaths have been linked to the lack of electric service, but most are not recognized as a hurricane Mara death. (Erika P. Rodriguez for CNN)
