Gutierrez: Puerto Ricans need help evacuating hurricane-ravaged island

The Atlanta Humane Society (AHS) told FOX 5 News about nine pups from Puerto Rico are currently up for adoption, including an adorable 3-month-old mixed breed dog named Veronica. That's nowhere near enough given the scale of the crises from California to Puerto Rico. (Reuters/Alvin Baez) Emilia Santos washes her hair with water coming through a pipe, after the island was hit by Hurricane Maria in September, in Toa Alta, Puerto Rico October 19, 2017.

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.

More importantly, this organization is ensuring that the territory's residents have the most vital resource of all: clean water. "I think this is the best decision for us".

The strongest storm to hit the island in decades left hospitals flooded, strewn with rubble and dependent on diesel generators to keep the neediest patients alive. "The few emails we get are for refunds", he said.

In a related matter, the school board approved an enrollment cap of 187 district students for the Lehigh Valley Dual Language Charter School in Bethlehem.

"I thought everybody knows what happened to us in Puerto Rico, and maybe they can help us, but it's not like that", she said.

"We assume JetBlue reallocates some PR capacity to other markets, but that takes some time to do, and if those other markets offered better returns pre-storms to PR, we assume JetBlue would have made that move already", analyst Hunter Keay of Wolfe Research said in a note late last month. The school, which immerses kindergarten through eighth-grade students in English and Spanish, has a total enrollment of 450 students.

FLORIDO: Some are and some aren't. Residents have rigged up a system of pulleys to manuever supplies across the river to their community.

INSKEEP: Are parents who in most cases would still be without power getting proper communications about what's going on with the schools?

Maria is not alone.

A week prior, Trump tweeted that Washington couldn't continue to help Puerto Rico "forever".

President Trump infamously touted the low death toll from the hurricanes, in comparison with the Hurricane Katrina disaster, yet the death toll is still being tallied.

It brings the total approved by Congress during this fall's hurricane season to more than $50 billion — and that's before requests expected soon to cover damage to water and navigation projects, crops, public buildings and infrastructure, and to help homeowners without flood insurance rebuild. I lost the house. On campus Students with Puerto Rico additionally collected diapers, toothbrushes, toothpaste, batteries, detergent, ibuprofen, antibiotics, flashlights, canned foods, baby formula, feminine hygiene products, soap, bug spray and other items. A Medicaid crisis would be another factor pushing people to leave the island for US states. Isn't it time for government to get its act together?
