WNPR crew visits Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria

(WTNH) — WNPR’s News Director Jeff Cohen and Digital Reporter Ryan Caron King have returned from Puerto Rico to review the aftermath of Hurrican Maria.

Cohen and King helped tell the stories of residents of the island, as well as the residents who are now seeking refuge here in Connecticut.

The strong Puerto Rican population in Connecticut, roughly %8, emphasizes the need for these reporting efforts. Trends show that number increasing due to Puerto Rico’s recent economic struggles and the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria.
