Ricky Martin on Puerto Rico: 'It Looks Like They Nuked Us'

U.S. President Donald Trump

The cataclysmic results were easy to predict. Our hearts continue to bleed for the struggling residents. "We want to make sure that the students are successful and that they don't lose any more of the education that they have already had to lose because of the storm".

After Elon Musk suggested on Twitter Thursday that Tesla Inc. could rebuild Puerto Rico's electricity system with solar panels and batteries, Rossello responded: "Let's talk". Officials have said that it could be months before power and water are fully restored to the island, especially in rural, isolated areas. Our residents are desperate to help.

Ricky Martin returned to Ellen Friday to discuss his recent trip to Puerto Rico, where the singer distributed basic necessities to those affected by Hurricane Maria. Currently, Tesla is sending power walls and solar panels to Puerto Rico in an effort to help the U.S. island territory restore electric power.

That drove Puerto Rico general-obligation bonds to a record low.

Still, a communications blackout remains a major problem for many. On Wednesday, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney, contradicted President Trump's comments about wiping out Puerto Rico's billions-dollar debt amid the catastrophic aftermath of Hurricane Maria. A cell tower may contain multiple cell sites for different wireless providers.

We must start by doing everything we can to support relief and recovery. Both people were killed by falling debris, underscoring the prevalent danger Puerto Ricans face across the island. As the factory, farm and tourist industries all slowed, Puerto Rico borrowed to continue services, "kicking the can down the road, which is what territories, states and countries do, as opposed to dealing with the reality". He stays in San Juan, does not helicopter around the whole island to get a complete picture and finally he throws out rolls of paper towels.

Golf Week tells us that the generally agreed-upon time it takes to play 18 holes of golf is about four hours, which is also about the length of time Trump tends to disappear for when he's close to a few greens, according to Newsweek.

First, he should ensure that Puerto Rico has the military and civilian personnel and the assets needed to restore transportation, telecommunications and electricity; to ensure relief supplies are delivered; and, to preserve law and order.

Many of the new deaths are from the island's rural interior, where CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook got a firsthand look at the devastation.

The FCC also released a document called the Hurricane Response Effort; read it here.

"This is, damn it, this is not a good news story".

Third, he should extend the Jones Act waiver for Puerto Rico beyond the 10 days approved initially. But no one here is waiting for things to be done for them.

"We've only heard 'thank yous' from the people of Puerto Rico", he said.

Renewable-energy advocates have wasted no time in promoting solar and batteries as a solution for regions wrecked by hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Over the weekend he used the word to describe Cruz, claiming that she was criticizing him at the urging of Democrats.

"We're trying to connect people with each other", said Hopper, the trade group's president. "There's absolutely nothing left", Prouty said. They asked for another $18.7 billion to address the damage from Harvey.

"We love Puerto Rico", he said.
