Stranded tourists and Puerto Ricans line up at the International Airport as they try to leave after Hurricane Maria devastated power and communications across the island, in San Juan

The number of Puerto Ricans who have left the island is averaging 1,800 residents a day since Hurricane Maria hit for a total of 100,000—more than the total number of Puerto Ricans who flew out in all of 2015, the latest year for which data is available.
