Nearly 70000 Puerto Ricans relocated to Florida after Hurricane Maria

Nearly 70000 Puerto Ricans relocated to Florida after Hurricane Maria

"We are currently in the process of scheduling our relief team's next trip to Puerto Rico", Rice told Good News Network.

As the days turn into weeks following Hurricane Maria, the people of Puerto Rico continue to need help said Marquez. (Reuters/Alvin Baez) Emilia Santos washes her hair with water coming through a pipe, after the island was hit by Hurricane Maria in September, in Toa Alta, Puerto Rico October 19, 2017. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the disaster. Like many islands today, Puerto Rico depends on imported food, which accounts for 85 percent of what residents eat. "It's important to note that we are deploying that capacity in places that I would call temporary, because we do expect that capacity will go back to Puerto Rico as the island redevelops".

At home, we are getting by, so to speak.

The island government initially portrayed its response as organized, but it has been overwhelmed by the tasks of post-hurricane recovery. There are many communities in the highlands that have been isolated by fallen bridges, impassable roads and landslides. She also donated a backpack, personal water purifier and solar light for each child at the school, as most - if not all - of the students do not have electricity in their homes and are unable to complete their homework. While those who live in larger cities may not have experienced the same reaction to the storm that we observed, we can't help but think the situations must have been somewhat similar. Furniture was destroyed, and my oven has two inches of water in the bottom, etc. etc.

At least one hotel remained closed from damage - and there were no mainland or overseas tourists to be seen.

Former South Riverkeeper Drew Koslow, working with the watershed restoration non-profit Ridge to Reefs on the Eastern Shore, just returned from the island where his organization, partnering with others on the island such as Iser Caribe, brought water purification systems and supplies to the remote areas of the island.

Tuesday's passage of the disaster relief bill comes after Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. "It's not over and done with, and it's not time to just move on".

Also traveling are fleet technician Eric Rivera, apprentices Andrew Phillips and Chase Crawford and engineers Carmelo Nieves and Marcos Laborde Delgado.

The current measure would permit FEMA to allocate up to $5 billion to assist Puerto Rico's central government and various municipalities through a cash crisis. In addition, the education department has consulted the teachers' union about recovering lost classroom time.

And this is not going to be the last hurricane, right? The center is open daily from 8 a.m.to 8 p.m. Appointments are not necessary. Hospitals and other crucial facilities have to rely on generators. That's how long it will take to replace the thousands of utility poles and miles of power lines that crisscrossed this precariously modern island.

INSKEEP: That's NPR's Adrian Florido in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Many residents do not have access to safe drinking water, and the EPA has expressed concern about people drinking dangerous water at "hazardous waste 'Superfund'" sites. Isn't it time for government to get its act together? The two then came up with the idea of donating Christmas trees to help lift the spirits of people who are still dealing with the destruction.
