Fort Campbell soldiers deploy to Puerto Rico

The restaurant's staff have close ties to Puerto Rico, like family and friends awaiting their help.

Puerto Rico officials pressed the Trump administration on Wednesday to lift a ban on foreign shipping between American ports as the USA island territory struggled with fuel, water and medical supply shortages one week after Hurricane Maria struck.

Right now, hundreds of Americans are siting, or sleeping, on the floor of the airport in San Juan Puerto Rico.

The devastation is so widespread everyday life has all but come to a stop on the island, where the storm knocked the power grid out, leaving its roughly three million residents, a lot of them American citizens, without electricity for months to come. So then, after that, they need to get operated on within four or five weeks.

Her tweet comes after Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said he asked the White House to loosen the regulations Wednesday night. She remembers talking to her sister as hurricane Maria approached the island.

"Our radio systems broadcast similar to your radio or TV station, they will be received to the mainland in Florida and the messages that we send will be turned into an email", he said. They don't have freezers. "We are now working on a way to make the statements of the relief account available to the public so they can track every single donation made to the fund". She, too, packed whatever she could carry. I was hoping it wasn't my last.

"I saw him past year". "There's lines, they don't have any cash".

"FEMA does have people in Puerto Rico", she says. Airport service is also limited. It was loaded with passengers and 19,000 pounds of cargo, including relief supplies. The Category 4 storm struck Puerto Rico with winds of 155 miles per hour. For those remaining open - like San Jorge - Cruz says it's been a struggle.

On Thursday the White House authorized a 10-day waiver of the Jones Act, a federal law that limits shipping to USA ports by foreign vessels.

Also on this flight were local relief workers from the Salvation Army, which has an estimated 150 staffers who are home-based in Puerto Rico. "We have no idea of the full magnitude.Nothing good happens after eight days in the tropics without food or water".

In addition to making donations, Carnival Corporation joined the Micky and Madeleine Arison Family Foundation and Miami HEAT Charitable Fund in pledging up to $10 million in funding and support for Florida and the Caribbean following Irma. They are eager to help.

The initial phase of disaster response is underway, Montano says, but the response is going to take many years.
