Hurricane Maria has knocked out power to the entire island of Puerto Rico.

The director of the State Agency for Emergency Management and Disaster Management, Abner Gómez, said in a press conference that 100 percent of the subscribers of the island's Electric Energy Authority are affected. 

"When we can get outside - we will find our island destroyed," Gómez said. " The information we received is not encouraging. It's a system that has destroyed everything it has had in its wake."

The storm has also destroyed 80 percent of the homes in a neighborhood in Catano, a suburb of San Juan, Catano Mayor Felix Delgado told The Associated Press.
