QUIZ: Do You Know More About Puerto Rico Than The Average American?

In September 2017, Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, leaving nearly the entire island without power. Despite the storm’s devastating aftermath, many Americans’ response to the tragedy hasn’t been as strong as that to the natural disasters that hit mainland U.S. just weeks before. Considering Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, why has the response been so meager? The lack of response coupled with false information spread about Puerto Rico online only goes to show that Americans really don’t know much as they should about this island. Test your knowledge to prove that you’re not one of them.
