From Deadline:

Puerto Rico’s film industry, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria, is hoping to get back on its feet before long to provide much-needed jobs and economic relief to the beleaguered island. In the meantime, local film crews – carpenters, electricians and technicians – are helping their communities in ongoing relief efforts and assisting visiting news networks in their coverage of the disaster.
