MP, SWL&P linemen line up to help Puerto Rico”

Hundreds of thousands of customers remain without electricity after powerful hurricanes hit the island in September. Ahead of crews' arrival in early January, APS is transporting vehicles and equipment via barges from the Port of Lake Charles, Louisiana.

About 3,500 lineworkers from Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, the New York Power Authority, Con Ed and Army Corps of Engineers contractors are working in Puerto Rico now. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy are planning to go to Puerto Rico to meet with local officials and see firsthand the work that remains to recover from Hurricane Maria. "Sanders", Blumenthal said. "We can not allow this administration to abandon fellow Americans and declare mission accomplished while half of Puerto Rico remains in the dark, clean drinking water is unavailable and thousands of people are living in temporary shelters".

"100 percent of the evacuees have no income because they have just arrived unemployed from Puerto Rico".

In another development, Scott announced that Puerto Rican teens who came here in the aftermath of the storm are eligible to earn their high school diplomas in Florida.

'People are breathing toxic air because of the diesel generators, the water is polluted and they don't have rooftops, highways haven't been fixed, ' says Elizabeth Yeampierre.

CUC's assistance to Puerto Rico, valued at $511,000, also includes renting one bucket truck and one pick-up as well as accommodation costs, Camacho said, adding that these will be reimbursed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Two Minnesota Power employees traveled to Puerto Rico in early December to set up lodging, food and other necessities for the incident management teams.
