Last November, Juan Rojas, 30, and his family moved to New Bern, N.C. from Puerto Rico. Their livelihoods came to a halt after Hurricane Maria devastated the island. After Hurricane Florence rapidly strengthened on Monday, he and his family decided to leave.
Juan evacuated to a relative's home in Duluth, Ga. His sister, niece, nephew and parents are in Marietta, Ga., where his brother lives.
