FCC approves $77m support package for hurricane-hit islands

FCC approves $77m support package for hurricane-hit islands”

Bishop said under evaluation was also the question of whether to modify or give additional power to the oversight board tasked with overseeing Puerto Rico's debt restructuring. "At least for Puerto Rico, this is very much a daunting beginning for reconstruction and rebuilding". Critics said the president had failed to grasp the magnitude of Maria's destruction as quickly as he had the twin wallops of Harvey and Irma. "As soon as you ask the second question the line drops".

Guzman has joined with other Pascagoula residents to collect donations.

"It's the least we can do to help the island and our fellow citizens", Rivera said.

Pence is telling the congregants that President Donald Trump wants them to know the federal government will stick with them as long as it takes to recover. "I know people are raising awareness and gathering all these goods, but it's not being pushed out to the people". "I really feel so happy because as a community we get together".

At a news conference on Wednesday, Gov. Ricardo Rossello said the death toll jumped to 34 from 16 on the basis of a report that he commissioned to consult with hospitals and gain a more complete picture of the number of victims.

Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan, recently appointed by the Pentagon to run point between Puerto Rico, FEMA and the DOD, should be commended - although he's only been on the job for a few days, the improvements are evident. "My island was so pretty and now it's totally destroyed".

Acosta loves the support she's seen from South Mississippians. Me and many friends in the continental US were looking from far away with no communication at all. More than 90 percent of the three and a half million people living on this island remain without power and phone communities. "We will continue to monitor each disaster closely and will work to ensure that both short-term relief and long-term recovery funds are available and are being put to good use for those in need", Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, a New Jersey Republican, the chair of the House Appropriations Committee, said after receiving the administration's letter. He's working his sources to try to find a way to ship the donations. "We will never leave your side", he said.

Dean O'Connor had difficulty reaching her counterpart in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria where lines of communication are nearly non-existent, but she made contact with a third party who helped the arrangements come together.

"I hope that folks realize that this influx is coming", Luis Martinez-Fernandez, a history professor at the University of Central Florida, told the Post.
