I have sometimes used the Jewish music archive at Florida Atlantic University - it's probably the biggest audio resource for Yiddish song in the world. I just looked up where it is: Boca Raton, in line for a direct hit from Hurricane Irma. It could well get totally trashed - I hope they have stuff archived off-site. Not much consolation that Mar-a-Lago is only a few miles away and even more vulnerable.
Dunno what music resources there might be in Puerto Rico but they might not have done too well either.
Past history now:
The distinctive cultures of the coastal barrier islands all along the south-east coast of the US could well face obliteration.
What else could be in trouble?

Haven't these places been hit hard before? Maybe not quite so hard, but when they were more vulnerable - less developed, more low-grade housing.
