In this Oct. 19, 2017 photo, Casimiro Rolon Medina and his wife Sofía Gomez, from Barrio Obrero, talk about how they handle the energy and water crisis in San Juan, Puerto Rico. While wealthier residents are sealed up in air conditioned homes with generators and bottled water, or have fled the island altogether for extended vacations, the poorest are left in sweltering heat and trying to secure enough water.
