Maria Martinez spent the day Wednesday glued to a radio feed from Puerto Rico.
The storm's center passed near or over St. Croix overnight Tuesday, prompting U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp to insist that people remain alert.
According to a March Suffolk poll, just 47 percent of Americans knew that a person born in Puerto Rico to Puerto Rican parents would be an American citizen, while 30 percent said they'd be a Puerto Rican citizen.
"I've got most of my family over there, so I'm really anxious about that". That report came after forecasters said Hurricane Maria was approaching the northern coast with destructive winds after raking over the island.
As the strongest storm in a generation hits the island of Puerto Rico family in Lorain continue to worry about the safety of loved ones trapped in Hurricane Maria's deadly path. "Obviously, we still have to keep an eye on it, it'll be a few days before we see any impacts as far as rip currents". A TV channel watched by many Puerto Ricans in the U.S.is WAPA-TV, in particular a daily news program called "Noticentro".
Concern for Puerto Rico as Hurricane Maria makes landfall
"It's frustrating, aggravating, and heartbreaking knowing that you know for a fact it's going to be devastating", she said.
It made landfall a little south of Yabucoa Harbor, Puerto Rico, Wednesday morning and brought 155 miles per hour winds, according to weather officials. St. Croix was largely spared the widespread damage caused by Hurricane Irma on the chain's St. Thomas and St. John islands just two weeks ago.
Pedro Caraballo said he has been unable to contact his family in Puerto Rico.
"We also need volunteers to help sort through the items and get them ready for shipping", Roman said.
