This week marked six months since Hurricane Maria tore through Puerto Rico.

Two months after the storm, a local construction analyst was sent to help.

Bill Guzman has been working and living there for the past 4 months.

He said people are getting by but they have to put water in their truck and haul it to their home. He said they also cook on wood or gas and hundreds of power crews are still there to help restore power.

Due to the extent of the damage, crews are having to recreate infrastructure.

"It's not that people aren't working. It's that there's so much work to do, and it's going to be years before it's anywhere back to normal," Guzman said.

Before traveling to Puerto Rico, Guzman helped in Houston after Hurricane Harvey. He said there aren't any plans for him to return to Puerto Rico at this time.
