As storm season starts, AP photographer revisits Puerto Rico

A printed photo taken on Sept. 29, 2017 showing police lifting the coffin of officer Luis Angel Gonzalez Lorenzo, who was killed during the passage of Hurricane Maria when he tried to cross a river in his car, is shown at the same cemetery in Aguada, Puerto Rico, May 31, 2018. The local police force of Aguadilla and Aguada lacks about a dozen officers since the storm, due to resignations and retirements. The U.S. territory’s bankruptcy has frozen promotions, salaries, new hires and some police academies have even closed. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)

Juana Sostre Vazquez holds a printed photograph of her taken after Hurricane Maria destroyed her home, as she poses with her family inside her new, cinderblock home that has a temporary roof in the San Lorenzo neighborhood of Morovis, Puerto Rico, May 26, 2018. Last year’s storm ripped Sostre’s wooden home off its foundation in the central mountain highlands. Living on food stamps and Social Security payments, the 69-year-old grandmother rebuilt with the help of her son-in-law and $14,000 in FEMA aid. She said her metal roof is nailed to wooden two-by-fours because she couldn’t afford to build stronger and hopes the next hurricane won’t send it flying. “The money didn’t let us do the roof,” she said. “I’m doing it little by little as I save a couple of dollars.” (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)

A printed photograph taken on Sept. 28, 2017 shows people bathing on the highway after Hurricane Maria destroyed people’s homes, held up at the same spot of the highway where motorcyclists ride past in Naranjito, Puerto Rico, May 27, 2018. Thanks to the owners of the land alongside the highway, creek water was piped to the side of the road for people without water to use for bathing, washing clothes and dishes.

Arden Dragoni holds a printed photo taken on Oct. 5, 2017 that shows him with his wife Sindy, three children and dog Max, amid the remains of his home that was destroyed by Hurricane Maria, as he stands at the same spot where his home remains in shambles in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico, May 28, 2018. The unemployed construction worker and security guard is currently separated from his family while his wife and his children live in a FEMA subsidized apartment, and he lives with his father. “The hurricane brought us many calamities but my lesson was to value my family from my heart,” said Dragoni.

A printed photograph taken on Oct. 7, 2017 sits at the same spot where Puerto Rican National Guards delivered food and water to desperate residents in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria on a farm in the San Lorenzo neighborhood of Morovis, Puerto Rico, May 26, 2018. For two months, stranded residents came to this spot for supplies handed out by the National Guard after the passing of the storm. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)

Roberto Figueroa Caballero holds a printed photo taken on Oct. 5, 2017 of him amid his seaside home that was destroyed by Hurricane Maria, as he stands on the same property with his pet dog in the La Perla neighborhood of San Juan, Puerto Rico, May 29, 2018. Figueroa, who found a job at a pizzeria, aims to rebuild his home and is appealing FEMA’s second rejection of his application. Figueroa’s dog was not allowed to go with him to a donated apartment where he lives now, so he visits his property daily to feed and care for him. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)
