Lt. Gen. Jeffrey S. Buchanan, an Army infantry officer who served multiple tours in Iraq, is expected to take over at the island command headquarters set up in the convention center in San Juan, the capital. "And I can only imagine her not eating, not sleeping, thinking about what she is going to do to feed them the next day.and some sort of power even for a few hours". He also said Trump's short-term waiver of the Jones Act was not enough.

"Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello just stated: 'The Administration and the President, every time we've spoken, they've delivered, '" the president tweeted. Though at the White House Thursday, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke had a different take.

ALBANY - One hundred NY state troopers will be deputized to carry out law enforcement activities in Puerto Rico as Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday authorized sending more resources to the hurricane-ravaged island. Rodríguez-Andino says he's seeing some signs that help from Uncle Sam is on the way, though, with aid trucks moving through town and increased air traffic at the San Juan airport.

"You have all the armchair quarterbacks shouting out a lot of criticism", Fugate said.

The relief fund, a non-profit, charitable entity with a 501c3 pending, is a one-stop source for people to donate directly to island-based charities. "So my cry today is let's get it done", Cruz said. "Importers are working to get supplies", one trader said.

One reason why? There aren't enough drivers to ferry cash around in armored cars to standalone ATMs.

"The only people who can restore it, who have the capacity to do so quickly in the short term, and then turn it over to the authorities there in Puerto Rico, is the Department of Defense", Rubio said. But he cautioned that the administration is operating with a playbook that works on the mainland rather than employing a unique response to a unique disaster.

This may explain why progress is slow going. "It's very important and these are some of the essentials I plan to give to the people of Puerto Rico as soon as possible".

"The problem with the logistics has been the part of the supply chain that moves the cargo from our terminal to the shelves or to the tables of the people of Puerto Rico".

Asked about the federal government's response, Cuomo noted the Federal Emergency Management Agency was spread thin after responding to hurricane damage caused in Texas, Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands earlier this month and in August. Marco Rubio on Thursday called for the United States military to be put in charge of the recovery efforts. Puerto Rico is home to about 3.4 million people.

Trump also said that "big decisions" will need to be made about the costs of rebuilding the hurricane-battered island.
