AP PHOTOS: Thousands in Puerto Rico shelters after hurricane

In this Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017 photo, Jesus Soto Rosado puts his socks on after spending the night at a school-turned-shelter for residents left homeless by Hurricane Maria in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico. Soto’s house was built in a flood zone, which floods often, but Hurricane Maria brought floodwaters reaching his second floor on Sept. 20. A housing official arrived to Soto’s house the next day and offered to help him move into a government-subsidized home off the flood plain. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)
