Hurricane Maria didn’t make impact in the continental United States, but Puerto Rico saw a direct hit from the intense Category 4 hurricane. Over 3.4 million Americans are struggling to get life back together with limited water and electricity. Tesla, who has a knack for helping areas in need, is sending batteries for energy storage to the island territory, helping in the ongoing recovery efforts.
