Hurricane Maria causes Doppler radar to explode
Hurricane Maria devastated many parts of Puerto Rico last week, and images and video continue to come out of the country, giving everyone a better picture of just how bad things are there.
The latest comes from the National Weather Service office in San Juan.
Staff there tweeted three pictures of its Doppler radar.

Normally, a Doppler radar looks like a giant white sphere on a pedestal. The NWS San Juan Doppler instead looks like a bomb went off inside of it.
The sphere is nearly completely gone, and only the inside is left, looking like a light bulb that’s been shattered and only the filaments inside remain.
