Hurricane Maria halts pharma operations in Puerto Rico

Hurricane Maria halts pharma operations in Puerto Rico”

"The devastation caused by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico is unprecedented in the island's modern history", Hispanic Federation President José Calderón said in a news release.

Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp (R) described the six days following Maria as "horrendous", with 80 percent of the islands' power distribution systems destroyed.

It's going to take months - years, really - to rebuild Puerto Rico. Lawmakers approved $15 billion in hurricane relief in the wake of Harvey but tens of billions of dollars more is sure to be needed in the weeks and months ahead.

Before the storm, Trump rightly signed emergency declarations for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, paving the way for federal aid. "The aid is pouring in, but what people need to realize is...we're an island-everything we need comes from outside".

Maria devastated Puerto Rico when it made landfall last week.

Watt was not alone in his efforts to help people in Texas and Louisiana. "However, as even the best laid plans can be overwhelmed by natural forces, we urge your administration's continued attention to this unsafe storm so that appropriate federal resources can quickly be made available as locally unmet needs arise". Speaker Paul Ryan also pledged relief for the territory.

"It's all organic and it's all very well thought out, with the balance of very high quality proteins and a lot of nutrient-dense food", Anderson told PEOPLE. "Congress is working with the administration to ensure necessary resources get to the USA territory". All five living former presidents-Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama-launched a campaign to raise money for Maria's victims.

"I can not tell you what it meant to me and to the people of Puerto Rico to see NY not only pledge support but Gov. Cuomo to actually show up with resources and supplies", she said. "Millions are without power, and the communication network is crippled", CNN reported on Monday, after speaking with the island's Governor Ricardo Rosselló, who warned that "we need to prevent a humanitarian crisis occurring in America".

US Weekly reports that Lopez also spoke during a press conference at the Jacob Javitz Center in NYC with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo yesterday.

"Should you kneel, stand with the football players?" More than 85% of those losses are in Puerto Rico, the firm said.

Trump's silence is disturbing and disheartening.

"This is a major disaster, not unlike Katrina or Sandy", Rosselló said. Today, as a matter of fact, we had a million liters of water come in to Puerto Rico.
