Numbers That Prove Puerto Rico is Still In Deep Crisis

Numbers That Prove Puerto Rico is Still In Deep Crisis

It's true some aid in Puerto Rico has been slow to arrive in the right hands, but that is reportedly due to mismanagement and government corruption. In one instance, I saw New Yorkers from the Operating Engineers Local 14 working deep into the night to construct new water filtration systems.

Like many on the island, Sergio Marxuach, policy director for the Center for a New Economy, a San Juan-based think tank, said a massive federal investment is necessary. Rain means more misery for people whose roofs were damaged by Hurricane Maria, and there was already an extreme shortage of tarps that people need to protect their homes.

"I've never done four hurricanes back to back, " Begnaud said. "This will be the most challenging environmental response after a hurricane that our country has ever seen", Judith Enck, who served as administrator of the EPA's region 2 - which includes Puerto Rico - under President Barack Obama, told the television network. But this, he said, is something far different.

Bob Odenkirk, who played sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman, is sponsoring a benefit event in Albuquerque where the show was filmed, the actor announced on social media. People cannot boil it because they have no power. There is also a serious threat of spreading infectious diseases as a result of both water-borne and insect borne illnesses. "There's never been anything like that". It's the same with petrol stations.

"You have to drink water, otherwise you die", he said. "We didn't have the airports open at full capacity until about a day or two ago".

But he said that about 10 percent of the employees in his Mayaguez office will move to the States in the coming weeks, several of them "high-level" employees. And after one month, it is fair to say that this is a test the president has failed.

Clark said she was particularly incensed by Trump's visit to the U.S. territory after Hurricane Maria, during which he tossed paper towels to a crowd.

A new program at Northern Michigan University gives students a unique opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the business and science of marijuana.

Additionally, without a greater focus on addressing urgent public health needs, Puerto Rico is facing a health crisis.

"You see that behind it all, Donald Trump is still a bully".

More than a third of Puerto Rican households, or roughly 1 million residents, still currently lack access to safe drinking water in their homes, CNN reports. "We have provided so much so fast".

Florida and New York are expected to be most affected by the exodus.
