Mayor in Puerto Rico

Cruz was referencing Duke's comments on Thursday, when the Trump administration official said she was satisfied with the government's response to help Puerto Rico's recover from Hurricane Maria. "And as you might imagine, it's very hard to run a hospital that way", he said. Anyone who has ever visited, vacationed, been stationed in the military or lived in Puerto Rico knows the voice of the coqui for its soothing sound they hear as they go to sleep.

FEMA has already placed the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in charge of rebuilding the island's crippled power grid, which has posed one of the island's biggest challenges after the storm. What do you want the president to see? The administration waived restrictions Thursday on foreign ships delivering supplies to the island. "We are unloading on an hourly basis, massive loads of water and food and supplies for Puerto Rico".

Earlier in the day, at a speech to a group of manufacturing industry leaders, he pledged to provide all possible assistance from Washington.

Shipping operator Hapag Lloyd said the container terminal was operating with limited generator power and under significant restrictions, and it meant to keep its schedule.

Pasadena first responders are heading to Puerto Rico to help hurricane victims, and they're getting a hand from singer Marc Anthony.

Democratic U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT said the crisis was shifting from a natural disaster to a man-made one.

AT&T and T-Mobile are waiving cell phone charges in impacted areas, Western Union will offer free money transfers to Puerto Rico from the mainland US, and JetBlue is flying in emergency supplies on one of its airplanes.

Ricardo Rossello, the Democratic governor of Puerto Rico, said Friday that President Trump has responded to his requests for help in the aftermath of two hurricanes, which devastated the island. Businesses pledged over $224.9 million to relief efforts following Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, according to a recent estimate from the Chamber.

Puerto Rico, he said, "was totally destroyed" and "10,000 Federal workers now on the island are doing a fantastic job".

On Monday night Trump sent off a series of tweets about the crisis in Puerto Rico.

"We've closely coordinated with territorial and local governments which unfortunately aren't able to handle this catastrophe on their own", the president said.

Rossello said Saturday morning that his previous conversations with Trump didn't square up with the President's tweets and that Trump had "reiterated his commitment with this effort".

"I understand the coverage in some cases is giving the appearance that we're not moving fast enough". Later, they turned their attention to shipping supplies to the Florida Keys after Hurricane Irma and now they are focused on Puerto Rico.

Now some politicians and renewable energy investors see a golden opportunity in the crisis to use federal funds to re-invent the USA territory's grid as a storm-resistant network that relies less on costly coal and oil imports and more on local wind, solar and batteries.

He says the priority now is the humanitarian and rescue mission in Puerto Rico.

"The feeling is that the response of the administration has been too slow in getting equipment and things down here, including cash", Tarbox said, with another 15 people in line ahead of him.
