LONG ISLAND -

Many Long Islanders remain concerned over their loved ones in Puerto Rico.

Jose Gonzalez, of Ronkonkoma, says he hasn't spoken to his parents since Hurricane Maria made landfall.

"Where they are right now, if they good, if they're a live. I just want to hear anything," Gonzalez said. 

Charlene Rodriguez, of Lindenhurst, also says she hasn't been able to reach her grandparents since Tuesday night.

Hurricane Maria knocked out all of Puerto Rico's power and 13 people have been killed as a result of the storm.
