New Yorkers are crucial to helping Puerto Rico recover from Hurricane Maria

Maria Sharapova will travel will fellow professional Monica Puig to Puerto Rico next week

Pastor Sean Kappauf, in Dana Point on Monday, October 16, 2017, is shown with the One ATTA Time water filtration device he delivered to the Hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico.

Employees interested in working in Puerto Rico must submit letters of intent by Friday. The federal government must do more to support the reestablishment of phone and internet services throughout the island as quickly as possible.

The storm hit Puerto Rico on September 20, causing at least 48 deaths as well as widespread flooding.

"I've never done four hurricanes back to back, " Begnaud said.

Supplies also included 20 MAP Medical Mission Packs valued at more than $400,000 in medical relief; Johnson & Johnson Medical Mission Packs; and 500 Disaster Health Kits. Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, as part of the American family, should be treated no differently.

"We're going to need some significant government intervention - essentially a big rescue package, not only to rebuild the economy but get it growing", he said. At the same time, Maria is the most catastrophic event in Puerto Rico's history. People cannot boil it because they have no power.

Water treatment requires electricity; thus, the flow from taps is greatly hampered. The utility was reportedly unaware that the site was contaminated until CNN contacted it with Superfund maps.

The near term response is not inadequate because of a lack of resources. With the help of folks like MoMA PS1 director Klaus Biesenbach, actor James Franco and philanthropist Agnes Gund, we gathered more than 1,000 people and raised a few hundred thousand dollars.

"We go in, take the time to train them, the purpose of it and how to maintain it", he said. These batteries can be used to provide power during the evening hours when there is no solar power available or during the day to provide a steady flow of power to the grid.

The Governor of Puerto Rico Ricardo Rossello will meet with President Donald Trump today at the White House.

Puerto Rico, already in the throes of an economic recession, will now be without many of the locally farmed products that provided sustainable alternatives to the roughly 85 percent of all food products the island already imports. About a dozen students are currently enrolled in the program, and more and more students are showing interest.

The departure, initially scheduled for late morning, was moved to the early afternoon, the National Guard said.

"There is a humanitarian crisis". That has complicated and delayed efforts to restructure a portion of a $74 billion public debt load that officials say is unpayable. The damage to the island has been staggering with power outages expected to continue for six months or longer. "We have a new normality, a different routine, a different way of life which we had taken for granted".
