Photos: Scenes of devastation in Puerto Rico after Maria

WASHINGTON — It’s been nearly a week since Category 4 Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico, cutting off power to millions and leading to scenes of damage and devastation on the island home of some 3.4 million U.S. citizens.

The storm smashed poles, downed power lines and knocked nearly the entire power grid offline. Some heavily damaged towns have been cut off from aid shipments and contact with the wider world. Shortages of drinking water and food have also been reported.

The aftermath of the powerful storm has resulted in a near-total shutdown of the U.S. territory’s economy that could last for weeks and has many people running seriously low on cash and worrying that it will become even harder to survive on this storm-ravaged island.
