Puerto Rico: Children Suffering Most in Aftermath of Maria

For many, it is personal. Allie hadn't heard from her since Hurricane Maria hit the island the previous week and didn't even know if she was alive until that moment.

An official at the hospital there says they are at least 49 dead from "indirect deaths" related to the storm - those who have had heart attacks but not been able to get adequate care, those who fell from roofs expecting damage, people on kidney dialysis machines that failed, for example.

But the celebrations were cut short when Gladys Galarza, a nurse, brought a patient's electrocardiogram (EKG) chart to emergency room physician Jorge Gagos. So you can see the power (laughter) that the hurricane had.

"Our mission here is to decompress the emergency room", said Lesa Ansell of Dallas, DMAT's chief nursing officer here and part of one of 18 teams across the island.

Central Florida is home to about 320,000 Puerto Ricans.

And then he lost everything. Waivers for international vessels are given on a temporary basis for national defense or emergencies. "What is your death count?" he asked as he turned to Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló.

"They noticed everyone in the plaza pulling their phones out", said CEO Vanu Bose.

President Donald Trump throws rolls of paper towels into a crowd of local residents affected by Hurricane Maria as he visits Calgary Chapel in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Oct. 3. Badame was the first to donate. "But now he's blaming the victim".

"We need to push it directly to the barrio to ensure that everyone's getting it", Brig. Every day I see citizens, organization, and celebrities doing what they can to get much needed aide to our fellow Americans in need.
