ABOUT OUR PROJECT
University of Mississippi School of Journalism and New Media students and faculty traveled to Puerto Rico in early January 2019 for a multimedia reporting project. Our goal: Interview residents still trying to recover after Hurricane Maria, 15 months after the powerful storm made landfall. We spent five days traveling to towns and rural areas.
