Hurricane Maria: Trump Defends Puerto Rico Response

Students, families and many school staff in the western MA city of Holyoke are still desperate for news from relatives in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit last week. They can also have a tangible effect on public and political support for aid to the island.

"We are running out of gasoline, there is no reservoir of drinking water, none absolutely", Cruz said.

"Humanitarian crisis will come to the United States in the form of the 3.5 million USA citizens that live here", Rosselló said. Government-supplied water trucks have been mobbed.

Rosas says his concerns for his mother are growing especially since reports indicate that conditions on the island are getting worse. Ten more ships, including a Navy hospital ship, are on the way.

In a report, the Department of Defense outlined the harrowing situation in the United States territory, which was slammed last week while Maria was still a category 4 storm.

In Florida, more than 915 people in 13 emergency shelters. The United States now has 16 Navy and Coast Guard ships operating near Puerto Rico and 10 more are on the way, said Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Brock Long.

"I'm going to keep trying every day", he says. But they have all the same rights as USA citizens on the mainland and should be treated as such. "We are supposed to be treated equally".

Inside the airport terminal, generators are providing the only power, and there is no air conditioning.

But Representative Adam Smith, the top Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, condemned the Trump administration's response to the crisis as "wholly inadequate". "Her last words to me were, she was praying to God and puts her life in the lord's hands", said Mayor Rosas.

Pitbull is doing his bit to help those that need it most.

It's been one week since Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico, leaving the island's 3.5 million residents without food, water, gasoline or electricity. "My corazón breaks for them", Silva said.

The administration has about $5 billion remaining in a disaster relief fund and Congress has already approved another $7 billion in funding that will become available on October 1, said an aide to the House Appropriations Committee.
