Florida Hospital doctors return from hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico

10 Octobre 2017

In the wake of Hurricane Maria, many Long Islanders with ties to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are opening their doors for friends and family members in need.

Rossello also tweeted on Monday that he has ordered prosecutors to "investigate irregular indications in the handling of supplies".

The Trump administration last week sent a $29 billion disaster relief fund request to Congress to deal with the aftermath of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, but did not detail how much was intended for Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico was already struggling before Maria hit, as it faced a more than $70 billion debt.

It's been almost three weeks since Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico, depriving most of the island of its electricity, cell service, infrastructure, and drinking water. "We Puerto Ricans, we're full of heart and we fight hard and I know they're going to come through you know".

More than 40 percent of the US territory still has no running water, and people are in need of gasoline, medicine, insulin and diesel.

Mr. Trump went on to claim that Cruz would be running for governor, but saying she was "not a capable person".

"Depending on the severity of the damage to the towers, it might lead them to other missions to determine which of the other towers are unusable", said White. He said the cheering was so loud, they had to turn it down so that you could only hear him speaking.

Rossello says 15 municipalities are still in dire need for food and water supplies, and five isolated areas that they are working to deliver aid.

But the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency dismissed Cruz's comments as "political noise".

She and their youngest son hitched a ride on a cargo plane headed back to Tampa while Jim stayed in Puerto Rico, adapting their company headquarters to meet the needs of their 1,700 employees. He told This Week "w$3 e filtered out the mayor a long time ago". "If FEMA can not source that themselves, we will leverage any asset that foots that bill".
