"I know St. John is still the worst of it in terms of the extent of the damages". "As of 2:30 a.m. we count 10,059 refugees and 189 pets (in shelters)", the island's governor, Ricardo Rosselló, tweeted.

Toppled trees cut power lines and streets were turned into rivers. And looking ahead, people are worried. "They don't know the whereabouts, they don't know if they are fine and it's terrible".

"I had three islands - St. John, St. Thomas and Water Island - devastated by Hurricane Irma, and St. Croix was our base for restoration and recovery".

Irma sideswiped Puerto Rico on Sept. 6, causing no deaths or widespread damage on the island but leaving more than 1 million people without electricity. "He's very agile. He's a lot more agile than me".

P.J. TOBIA: The people of Puerto Rico spent a long day trapped in their homes, snatching cell phone glimpses of Maria carving a slow, destructive path.
