From the Abstract: "Hurricane Maria made landfall south of Yabucoa Harbor, Puerto Rico, as a category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 155 miles per hour on September 20, 2017. The hurricane devastated much of the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with Federal Emergency Management Agency, installed a temporary monitoring network of 13 water-level and barometric pressure sensors along the coast of Puerto Rico prior to the storm. In addition to the temporary sensors, the USGS maintains 99 permanent real-time streamgages and 36 real-time precipitation stations in Puerto Rico."
