Survivors of Hurricane Maria desperately need aid

People collect water from a natural spring created by the landslides in Corozal, west of San Juan, Puerto Rico, on September 24, 2017.

(CNN)Puerto Rico is desperate.

A vast majority of the island is without power after Hurricane Maria, a powerful Category 4 storm, struck on September 20.
    Food is scarce, and fuel is running short. Dozens are dead.
    Damaged infrastructure and red tape are limiting aid distribution.
    "Puerto Rico is part of the United States, and we need to take swift action," Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said. "This is a major disaster."
    Maria carved a destructive path through the Caribbean just days after Hurricane Irma plowed through the same region.
    The independent island of Dominica is in ruins, and the US Virgin Islands are also dealing with massive damage.
    Aid organizations are trying to respond to these new challenges; some are combining relief efforts for Maria and Irma.
    Facebook has activated its safety check-in page for survivors to check in with their families and become part of the community discussion.
    There are several ways you can help:
    Give your time: Puerto Rico needs volunteers. Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster can help match you with groups on the ground that are responding.
    Drop-offs for needed supplies: A Google spreadsheet with a list of places to drop off supplies has been created.
