This morning Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands are bracing for a potentially devastating direct impact of Hurricane Maria. Hurricane watches and warnings are already in effect for islands reaching from St. Lucia to the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, our employees, colleagues, business partners and friends as they prepare for Hurricane Maria.
