Puerto Rico Faces Extensive Damage After Hurricane Maria

President Trump spoke out on Tuesday about his plans for American assistance in Puerto Rico, one week after Hurricane Maria brought the island to a standstill. What once was, according to Weir, a scenic neighborhood, now appeared as though "a lawnmower in the sky came down".

The City of Dunkirk is raising money and supplies to send to Puerto Rico.

Hurricane Maria has devastated Puerto Rico, and millions are without electricity and clean drinking water. He said demolished airports and seaports have made it difficult to get aid and personnel to the stricken island.

"Two Category 5 hurricanes passing through an island is unprecedented and therefore the response needs to be unprecedented", Rosselló said. By evening, most of the island was in complete darkness.

A spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security says officials believe there is sufficient capacity of U.S. -flagged vessels to move goods to Puerto Rico.

Rivero-Bello said there's a feeling that not enough is being done for Puerto Rico. "And we're doing all we can".

One Foley mother says she's been worried sick since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico last week because her daughter, son in law and four grandkids are stuck on the island. She grew up on the U.S. territory and moved back there 10 years ago.

"It was about five days that I went with no communication with anybody whatsoever.Just the fact of not hearing from them was lingering in my mind, oh maybe something did happen", Lugo said.

"We got A-pluses on Texas and Florida, and so we will on Puerto Rico", Trump said.

The images, from a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellite, offer aerial views of the island. And it's a big ocean. We are unloading on an hourly basis massive loads of water and food and supplies for Puerto Rico.

"If we don't get unprecedented collaboration from the federal government here, this could collapse into a humanitarian crisis", Rossello told ABC News.
