The 2017 Hurricane Maria was the tenth most intense Atlantic hurricane on record, causing catastrophic damage and a major humanitarian crisis in both Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Two months later, less than half of Puerto Rico has access to basic services such as electricity, many are still without potable water, and communications are limited with cellular service interrupted.
Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) is committed to helping relief organizations in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin islands, and has made a corporate donation to the American Red Cross on behalf of our friends at the American Geographical Society (AGS). In addition, RGi supplied a new portable generator to a fellow GEOINT community member whose family remains without reliable access to electricity.
