Hurricane Maria has been named the deadliest natural disaster to strike the United States in a century and caused the deaths of nearly 3,000 people. Survivors of the storm and resulting complications have joined together to remember their lost loved ones and to grieve for the end of their old lives on the island.
The Office of Mental Health Services and Addiction Prevention in Puerto Rico estimates that recovery from Hurricane Maria could take up to 18 months, but because of the severity of the disaster, the agency believes it may take as long as two years.
There are six phases to the disaster recovery process, and the main administer of the agency believes Puerto Rico is in the disillusionment phase, the fifth phase of the process when survivors feel discouraged.
