Can you imagine living in a place where it never snows? I can because my dad told me that his dad lived in a place called Coamo in Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico has had many hurricanes. They did a lot of damage to many people’s homes. One hurricane nearly destroyed Puerto Rico. The name of the hurricane is Hurricane Isabel. She is one of the worst hurricanes ever to hit Puerto Rico.
