Leptospirosis cases rise in Puerto Rico, May become more prevalent

Bethlehem Area School District has enrolled about 30 new students from families fleeing Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria ravaged the island, and Superintendent Joseph Roy said he expects that number to climb.

The Atlanta Humane Society (AHS) told FOX 5 News about nine pups from Puerto Rico are currently up for adoption, including an adorable 3-month-old mixed breed dog named Veronica.

During a meeting with Puerto Rico governor Ricardo Rosselló on Thursday (Oct. 19), Donald Trump rated his job of handling the post-Hurricane situation in Puerto Rico a "10" out of 10.

A donor contributed a charter flight from Easton, where Koslow works on farmland bio-reactors to reduce runoff into waterways, to Aguadilla on the northwest corner of Puerto Rico.

When Maria raked Puerto Rico with hurricane winds and biblical rainfall, the town was largely spared the worst of the destructive winds and water.

Now the challenge is whether Puerto Rico, which sustained enormous damage after Hurricane Maria's landfall more than a month ago, will get enough aid to rebuild. It has been involved in the Wireless Power Consortium and efforts to improve the Qi standard for wireless charging. "This is what POTUS calls a 10!". For example, last week The Wall Street Journal noted that while emergency food and medical supplies are available to assist Puerto Ricans, many simply do not know where to go to acquire them, since there is little communication available on the island. The firms are major employers.

Baxter recently announced that the FDA "had allowed it to import bags from the company's factories in Ireland and Australia, and said production in Puerto Rico was slowly resuming", the newspaper reports. Deseda on Friday had confirmed the first death linked to leptospirosis in the municipality of Carolina.

"People here will say they have great compassion and want to help the people of Puerto Rico and the people of Texas and the people of Florida", said Sen. Dozens of other schools were badly damaged. And not even most people in the United States know that. Indeed, those who have money have probably already helped their loved ones evacuate, and many have resettled here in Chicago, my own extended family included.

The bill also would provide $576.5 million for fighting wildfires in the West. The House passed the measure after new wildfires broke out that devastated northern California's wine country. They are not doing so well.

For the third quarter, JetBlue produced net income of $179 million, a decrease of $20 million compared to the same period last year. JetBlue executives said they expect these travelers, who usually do not need hotels, will continue to fly to and from the island. We just got hit by one hurricane, and then completely destroyed by another one two weeks later.

"The best thing is you see people banding together to help each other and keep their spirits up". "We're really still trying to get the information we need to manage it".

Unfortunately, Puerto Ricans are treated as second-class citizens; its government made subservient to Washington. The teachers were ready for school to begin, but because this happens to be in one of the most - the school happened to be in one of the most affected regions of the island, they won't be getting inspectors for a while.
