I forgot to let my Instagram peeps know! Yesterday my mom was able to contact me through a kind stranger who lent her a working phone (not a lot of working phones left in PR after hurricane Maria). For the first time in six days I felt like I could finally breathe! Things are not perfect though! Her home is still flooded and she has no electricity, no water and she is running out of provisions fast (like almost every Puerto Rican on the island). Lots of desperate people on the island, but also a lot of people helping each other out as well. Hoping I can get her out soon. #HurricaneMaria #HuracánMaria #MariaPR #PuertoRico

Esta es mi madre, Maritza Soto López. Vive en el barrio "Los Cocos" en Quebradillas, Puerto Rico. Es originalmente de Camuy y es posible que busque alojo/refugio en Camuy. Ya van casi 72 horas desde la última vez que hablé con ella antes de que el Huracán María azotara a Puerto Rico. Ella había decidido quedarse en su hogar, en Quebradillas. Mi hermano, Ricardo Cordero-Soto y yo buscamos, desesperadamente, cualquier información sobre el área de Los Cocos y mi madre. En la parte inferior de la foto, pueden ver algunas de las amistades de mi madre. En la parte inferior, a la izquierda, está mi madre con una de sus amistades más cercanas, Irma I. Delgado (conocida como "Pochi"). También buscamos información de ella. Agradecemos cualquier dato que tengan sobre el área. @ricardojavier81 @0chella0 #HurricaneMaria #MariaPR #HuracánMaría #Quebradillas #Camuy #PuertoRico

This is my mother, Maritza Soto-López. She lives in the neighborhood known as "Los Cocos" in Quebradillas, Puerto Rico. She is originally from Camuy and most likely would seek refuge in Camuy. It's been almost 72 hours since I last spoke to her, right before Hurricane Maria crossed Puerto Rico. My brother, Ricardo Cordero-Soto and I are desperately trying to get any information on her. On the lower side of the picture you can see some of her friends. Lower left side of the picture shows my mom with one of her closets friends, Irma also known as "Pochi". We are waiting to hear from her as well. Any information on my mother or her friends is greatly appreciated. #HurricaneMaria #MariaPR #HuracánMaría #Quebradillas #Camuy #PuertoRico @ricardojavier81 @0chella0

We did it!! Picked up the leaves with my hands and placed them in garbage bags with the help of Juan and S. Michelle!

The parking area at our complex was flooding, but I've been looking at the sewer all day and thought something was odd... Decided to do something about it! #HurricaneIrma #Hurricane #Irma #Flooding #TeamWork #NotPartOfTheProblem #TakingAction #RiskedIt #WorthIt #Orlando #Florida #Huracán #HuracánIrma @mr.juandalf @smi_vaz

Last preparations before Hurricane Irma arrives to Central Florida. Get rid of your projectiles! Secure everything and get your pets inside!! #HurricaneIrma #Irma #hurricaneprep #Orlando #Florida
