San Juan Mayor To Trump Admin
Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez on Friday broke down in tears while describing the dire situation in Puerto Rico and sharply criticized President Donald Trump for his administration's response so far to the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
Trump says "they want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort". Dukesaid she is aware people are suffering and "clearly the situation in Puerto Rico after the devastating hurricane is not satisfactory". "They are working so hard, but there's nothing left", he said. "And we need to employ them".
Baker said Puerto Rico had accepted the offer for the unit to help support satellite-based data and mobile communications on the hurricane-ravaged island, where communication lines have been severely damaged. Kim, or someone else in the military, should have the highest decision-making power on the island for a temporary period of time. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and other lawmakers on the mainland stepped up demands for the appointment of a federal official to oversee relief efforts. In the case of the airport, for example, Rubio said the Federal Aviation Administration, FEMA and the local government have jurisdiction.
Radamez Montanez, a building administrator from the municipality of Carolina, east of capital city San Juan, said he had been without water and electricity at home since Hurricane Irma grazed the island two weeks before Maria.
How does the Jones Act restrict vessels entering Puerto Rico?
Now some politicians and renewable energy investors see a golden opportunity in the crisis to use federal funds to re-invent the United States territory's grid as a storm- resistant network that relies less on costly coal and oil imports and more on local wind, solar and batteries. And true to form, Trump turned to Twitter to hit back.
While foreign companies can ships goods to any USA port, supporters of the Jones Act say restricting shipments between US ports to American-run vessels strengthens the economy.
"The loss of life, it's always tragic", Trump said. "10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job", Trump said on Saturday. The Wisconsin Republican said he expects the Trump administration to send Congress a request for a long-term recovery package once damage assessments are conducted.
"At this point, the federal government is there at every level providing assistance", Bossert said.
Colonel James DeLapp, the Army Corps of Engineers commander for Puerto Rico, told CNN that rebuilding the island's crippled power grid was a massive undertaking.
Only 20% of truck drivers reported back for work in the wake of Hurricane Maria and diesel fuel shortages and blocked roads have also hampered the distribution of supplies.
"Diesel fuel and water constraints are presenting challenges as the facility now is running on generator power, a limiting operational condition", the company said. "This bureaucratic response is not working". "You may have a huge fleet but they ain't moving themselves". The problem is this is not any storm. Because Texas is a hub for nationwide petroleum distribution, the damage from Harvey led to limited fuel supplies, adding stress to recovery and evacuation efforts in Texas and possibly Florida. "It's very mountainous and it's very unsafe for air operations to be taken to certain places", he says - risky not just for the air crew, but for people on the ground.
"And if it doesn't stop, and if we don't get the food and the water into people's hands, what we are going to see is something close to a genocide".
