Situation in Puerto Rico Continues to Worsen

Sep 26, 2017

Despite major relief efforts by FEMA, the U.S, military and private agencies, the situation in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands continues to get worse. Massive damage from hurricanes Irma and Maria has caused many areas to be inaccessible due to the blockage of roads and destruction of bridges, not to mention the major flooding.

This means that when supplies such as food, water, medicine, and fuel are brought into the islands the people that desperately need them are not able to get to the locations where the relief is available and rescuers can’t reach them. In Puerto Rico there is also the imminent danger of a major dam breaking and causing additional devastating flooding. There is still no power available.
