Puerto Rico is in the dark in wake of Hurricane Maria

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Every night since Hurricane Maria hit, Miguel Martinez and his family have slept on mattresses on the porch to escape the heat inside their dark, stifling home. But it's nearly impossible to sleep with temperatures in the high 70s. At least once a night they climb to the roof to catch a hint of breeze. Then the 51-year-old construction worker, his three children and one grandchild...

Get Started: Many businesses uninsured for flood damage

FLOOD INSURANCE BASICS When hurricanes or rivers swollen by heavy rains send floodwaters into businesses, many owners are left with steep financial losses because they didn't have flood insurance.

Many owners don't buy flood insurance because of its cost or the belief that they don't need it. In high-risk areas, annual premiums can run into the thousands of dollars and rise by double-digit percentages each year. Owners in low-lying areas or near oceans...
