Hurricane Maria has knocked out electricity across Puerto Rico, after strong winds and flooding brought down the island’s power service.
The storm made landfall early on Wednesday morning with winds of 155mph (250kph). Widespread flooding is affecting the capital San Juan, and a flash-flood warning has been declared in central Puerto Rico, where river levels are at a record high.
