PR Congresswoman Describes Hurricane Maria While Sheltering in Closet
Puerto Rico's nonvoting member of Congress described to Shepard Smith what it is like riding out Hurricane Maria from her closet.
Resident Commissioner Jenniffer Gonzalez Colon said power was knocked out to the entirety of the island, and that she has been staying in her home since Maria's winds picked up strength around 1 a.m. Wednesday.
Colon said the portion of homes in Puerto Rico that are made of wood are "almost gone."
"We're still having severe winds across the island," she said.
Smith asked how Colon was speaking with him amid the power and communications outages.
Colon said she prepared for the storm by purchasing extra cell phone batteries in addition to being able to connect to one of the few remaining comms towers not affected by the storm.
"We still don't know the full extent of the damage for this monster hurricane," she said.
