Hurricane Maria are Effects Felt in West Texas

Hurricane Maria are Effects Felt in West Texas”

The National Weather Service in San Juan said the municipalities of Isabela and Quebradillas, home to some 70,000 people, were being evacuated with buses because of a crack in the Guajataca Dam. The cargo hold was stuffed with a variety of donations, everything from food and water to much-needed generators. Dozens more shipments are expected in upcoming days.

"Jersey City has one of the largest Puerto Rican communities outside of Puerto Rico, with deep ties to the island where many family members still live", said Mayor Steven Fulop.

The island's infrastructure was in sorry shape long before Maria struck.

Cuomo said Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello asked his NY counterpart for assistance. We have to remember they're American citizens", Cuomo said Friday night after arriving back in New York City "They're not going to be able to fix it on their own.

Over the past 100-plus years, Puerto Rico has averaged 10 inches of rain for all of September.

"We will use all our resources", Velazquez said. We are very satisfied and grateful for that help. "These are American citizens".

"We're giving them what they need".

"There's no light, no water", said Arrieta-Guzman. The hospital is about to collapse.

"If it comes close to us or whatever, it is going to cause damage - even if we just get the water", she added.

"Puerto Rico needs you at the moment".

Ortiz brought ABC News to the nursing home, situated in a residential neighborhood. William Villafane is a government official who's been out assessing that damage.

"This is the first time we get this type of federal co-ordination", said Resident Commission Jenniffer Gonzalez, Puerto Rico's non-voting representative in Washington.

Well before this year's series of historically powerful hurricanes, Puerto Rico already had a notoriously fickle power supply and crushing debt - the power authority effectively declared bankruptcy in July.

Floodwaters from Hurricane Maria have left the Guajataca Dam under extreme stress in the aftermath of the storm, leading the National Weather Service to say that it is in "imminent" danger of failing, according to The Washington Post.
