The wind is picking up on the island; the rain starting to get harder. And after what happened with Hurricane Maria, they are glad to be here in Connecticut.

For some traveling back to Hartford it’s bittersweet because they left some friends and family back on Puerto Rico. They hope their families fare well and the storm passes through without much damage.

News 8’s Bob Wilson will have the full story tonight on News 8 at 10p and 11p.
