Shamir Quinones joined the Fox family earlier this year, leaving behind family and loved ones. Since his departure, two major hurricanes (Irma and Maria) left damage back home in Puerto Rico.
Quinones said that communication is difficult as the island still remains without power. He shared video with us, sent in by his mother-in-law, showing knee-deep water in the garage and outside the home.
Even after two devastating hurricanes, Quinones said that his family is not likely to leave the island after living there for so many years because they're prepared for the worst and hope for the best.
"The good thing about (Hurricane) Irma, every emergency setup was in place for what could happen, " Quinones added, "and it did happen."
But Hurricane Maria was able to a lot more damage, he said. Water crept into locations, inside and outside the home, that weren't there with Hurricane Irma which made this storm a lot more expensive than Hurricane Irma.
