WATCH: Videos of Destructive Hurricane Maria Making Landfall in Puerto Rico

Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico today, September 20th. Maria is responsible for the deaths of at least nine people in the Caribbean. It is one of the strongest hurricanes to ever hit Puerto Rico. Puerto Ric0 Office of Emergency Management claim that 100% of the U.S. territory is now without power. Maria is the 3rd category 4 hurricane to make US landfall this year, after Irma and Harvey. They will all mostly likely be retired names after this year.

Videos have been pouring in online as Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico. Check out some of these compilations below and see the destruction she is leaving behind.

The winds of a category 4 hurricane are vicious. This video below of CNN reporter Leyla Santiago is quickly making the rounds on the internet because the whipping winds almost blew her away.

And before Maria moved over Puerto Rico, she was out east in the Lesser Antilles.  Aerial footage shows the destruction on the island of Dominica.
