Puerto Rico Disaster Relief Resources

| September 28, 2017 | 0 Comments

Early on Wednesday, September 20, Hurricane Maria, a powerful Category 4 hurricane with 150 mph winds, made direct landfall on Puerto Rico, bisecting the entire island and drenching it with rain. What’s happened since has been catastrophic for Puerto Rico.

There’s still no power on the island, with the exception of a few generators powering only the highest-priority buildings such as hospitals. That means in many places there’s no water to drink or bathe in or to flush toilets. There’s limited food, fuel, and cell service, and it’s taken several days for reporters and rescue workers to reach remote towns and villages.

“Make no mistake — this is a humanitarian disaster involving 3.4 million US citizens,” Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said Monday.
