A statue of the Blessed Mother is seen amid debris in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico, on September 22, 2017. Our Lady of Providence was declared the patroness of Puerto Rico by Pope Paul VI on November 19, 1969.

Puerto Rico battled dangerous floods Friday after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island, as rescuers raced against time to reach residents trapped in their homes and the death toll climbed to 33.
