Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria

Satellite image showing the devastation to Puerto Rico after Maria.

Detailed Description

This pair of Landsat 8 images shows the large-scale damage done to Puerto Rico. The lush green landscape in the 2016 image is replaced by a faded green. The strong winds stripped the leaves off trees to cause the degraded landscape. The forest is expected to recover.
