The President spooked the bond market Tuesday when he went to storm-damaged Puerto Rico and said more than $70 billion of the island's debt should be "wiped out".

The Pirates will send dozens of pallets of water, child care products, pet food and other items Puerto Rico residents need after team members and Pittsburgh residents donated the goods.

Trump's desire to avoid the tricky topic tracks with talking points the White House distributed after the shooting that urged supporters to stress now was not the time to talk about gun control.

With the right balance of massive public investment and tax restructuring, PERI argues, an island-wide program of "green growth" is possible.

After natural disasters, outbreaks of communicable disease can occur especially when populations are displaced; waterborne infections, vector-borne infections (e.g., Zika, dengue) and overcrowding related conditions may be seen.

This is intensified by the lack of traffic lights and the fallen trees and electric power lines that cover the streets.

Campa also told reported during a conference call Monday that 65 percent of grocery stores had reopened as well as 69 percent of gas stations.

"There's a time for lighthearted and there's a a time for not", she said, "and being on an island that's devastated and people are dying, I don't think funny is really the direction you want to go".

A mere 6.9% of the island has electricity, according to the government of Puerto Rico.
