On September 20 Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico leaving more than 3 million people without any communication. According to some estimates, more than 5 million Puerto Ricans live outside of the island. How do you connect and inform both after a natural disaster like this? With a strong focus in video and the help of social networks, google forms, bots, cell phones and journalists, Univision Noticias took on the task of connecting and informing people between Puerto Rico and the United States. This was part of the #PRActívate initiative.
