Puerto Rico Struggling with Shortages of Basic Supplies

Puerto Rico Struggling with Shortages of Basic Supplies

She implored the president, who is set to visit the USA territory on Tuesday, to "make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives".

And FEMA Administrator Brock Long said the efforts have been hampered by damaged airports and ports on the island.

She also sought to put the "good news" remark behind her.

"I'm not satisfied because the fact is that we will not be satisfied until we stabilize the situation", Long said.

Scott, who travels today to San Juan, Puerto Rico, told universities and colleges in a statement that he wants to be sure the state "does everything possible to assist Puerto Ricans wherever possible".

The Trump administration has vowed to give the island its full support.

The cruise line canceled its September 30 Adventure of the Seas trip to use the ship to deliver supplies and help evacuate people from the island, which has been devastated by Hurricane Maria. Fewer than half were operational on Wednesday as limited access to fuel shut down power generators that allowed hospitals to remain up and running.

He said the BSF is fully alert to meet any challenge along the global border to foil the "nefarious designs" of Pakistan. Apart from explosives, the BSF also found sleeper bags, digging tools and food items including.

So far at least 16 have died, according to The Associated Press.

Yulín Cruz tweeted shortly after Trump, saying that the only goal was "saving lives". "CNN seems to have aired more coverage of Maria than its competitors in the US did, and the data hints that the network may again be ramping up its coverage". "We are there for them", Conway said. "I'm glad you raised those points about his bankruptcies, and for him to raise that issue at this moment, tone-deaf doesn't begin to explain how out of touch he is". "I am begging, begging anyone that can hear us, to save us from dying".

Trump said the effort "will end up being one of the biggest ever" and noted that Puerto Rico already had "a tremendous amount of debt".

The U.S. military is sending a three-star general to Puerto Rico to help direct the response to the hurricane as the Defense Department works to send several thousand more troops to the island. Utility executives say this incentivizes the utility to invest in its power grid, and continually improve reliability, customer experience and technology. It's hard to imagine 3 million Americans in Texas, or California, or NY being left without power and running water being treated to the same feeble attention. Telecommunications were back for about 30 percent of the island, almost half of the supermarkets had reopened at least for reduced hours, and about 60 percent of the gas stations were pumping. Hurricane Maria essentially wiped out these Americans' ports, roads, electricity, communications, water supply and crops and many homes. Governor Ricardo Rossello has called the island's devastation unprecedented. From there, they'll board a private jet owned by Anthony to Puerto Rico.

Cruz became involved in Puerto Rico's Popular Democratic Party in 2003, and was elected president of its women's organization.

Trump took two back-to-back trips to Texas after he completely dropped the ball during the first visit and failed to meet with any Hurricane Harvey victims, but he won't be heading to Puerto Rico until next Tuesday, CNN reports. "Big decisions will have to be made as to the cost of its rebuilding!" Puerto Rico deserves and needs representation in the United States government, although it is a tragedy that it took such an event to bring attention to this.
