On Thursday the government of Puerto Rico submitted a report to Congress documenting the effects of Hurricane Maria back in September of last year. The report looked at the death rate on the island over the next months compared to prior years to detail the effect the hurricane had on the population. The findings showed that over 1400 people died as a result of the disaster, and the ongoing issues following the destruction.
This number greatly surpasses the official Washington death toll of 64 people. In the report to Congress, the government of Puerto Rico said, “The hurricanes’ devastating effects on people’s health and safety cannot be overstated.” Some Congress members have also suggested that the U.S. government update their methods of calculating death tolls moving forward.
