Hurricane season started on June 1.
While no hurricanes have formed so far, the first “hurricane watch” went into effect Wednesday night for a storm that’s headed toward Louisiana in the coming days.
Meanwhile, Puerto Rico is still recovering from Hurricane Maria, the Category 5 storm that pummeled the island in September of 2017 — knocking out power for months and taking more than 3,000 lives.
Morning Shift checks in Puerto Rican Agenda, a Chicago nonprofit that has been helping both people on the island and many hundreds of people who evacuated and came to live in Chicago after the storm.
GUEST: Cristina Pacione-Zayas, co-chair of the Puerto Rican Agenda
