    Efrain Diaz Figueroa, right, walks by his sister's home destroyed in the passing of Hurricane Maria, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Monday, Oct. 9, 2017. Maria sent tens of thousands of Puerto Ricans fleeing to the U.S. mainland to escape the immediate aftermath of the storm. The 70-year-old is waiting for a sister to come take him to stay with family in Boston. “I’m going to the U.S. I’ll live better there,” he said.

    San Diego-based Cubic Corporation is working to restore communication to storm-battered Puerto Rico.

    Cubic Corporation has deployed emergency communication technology to the hurricane-ravaged island.

    The portable technology is able to restore service to cell phones and the nation's 911 system to hopefully save lives.

    In addition to restoring phone service, portable antennas are also providing much needed wi-fi service to medical teams working in the hardest hit portions of the island.

    Cubic has deployed the same technology during natural disasters since Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
