A family living in Puerto Rico when Hurricane Maria hit officially relocated to Omaha. 

Joel Ortiz's ex-wife, their two sons, her new husband and baby had their home destroyed by the storm. Previously, Ortiz had been sending his family supplies, but now they are all back in one place. 

"More than anything I'm happy," Ortiz said. "But I'm just wondering how we're gonna figure out everything else. Job situation, where the kids are gonna go to school and just getting them used to have a new community."
