Clean Water Lands in Puerto Rico Thanks to Solar-Powered Filtration

Paris Jackson Lends a Hand to Hurricane Relief Efforts in Puerto Rico

The town's added bonus is the bioluminescent bay, one of three in Puerto Rico, and one of fewer than dozen across the globe.

Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said last week that some of Puerto Rico's municipalities weren't aware that food and water supplied by FEMA was available at distribution centers. 18, about 1 million Puerto Ricans are without clean water and the entire island is still without sustainable power. This generous, bipartisan act is one of true generosity and statesmanship. By focusing national attention on this crisis, we can help Puerto Rico break through the president's inaction, the media's short attention span and Congress' tendency to spend too little too late.

Medical device manufacturers need reliable electricity and a lot of it, Gottlieb said, so some firms might not transition from their generators even after the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority comes back online.

If your home is incinerated by a wildfire in Montana or California, or demolished by a hurricane in Texas, Florida, or Puerto Rico, odds are you can't recover without some form of help.

"We are all committed to meeting the need that has arisen because of these devastating hurricanes", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said during floor debate Monday. Their first day's trek took them into an area road blocked since the storm, until a bulldozer moved in just ahead of the team's trucks. They make one feel honored and humbled to walk among them. Almost as a testament to the steadfast nature and goodness of the local people, the land is already green again with the promise of blooms soon to come.

Unfortunately, Puerto Ricans are treated as second-class citizens; its government made subservient to Washington.
