Puerto Ricans Seek To Rebuild A Shattered Health Care System After Hurricane Maria
https://www.yahoo.com/news/puerto-ricans-seek-rebuild-shattered-094648547.html
...But Morales is responsible for handling the donations that Clínica Bantiox ― a health clinic set up in a preschool just six days after Hurricane Maria ― receives from organizations around the world. She stays there to ensure that everything, from the blood sugar meters to diapers, stays safe overnight.

Not Puerto Rico but the US Virgen Islands update. As you never hear anything about them and they got hit by 2 cat 5s not just one. But they seem to be recovering much faster than Puerto Rico. Hope that posting these amounts of the clips is not in violation of any rules.

ST. CROIX, Virgin Islands – Roads have been cleared of debris. Electricity is flowing. Stores are open. Students are in school.

Six months after hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix, recovery is well underway, led by the Virgin Islands Territorial Emergency Management Agency and local officials with support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and its partner agencies.

“The residents of these islands are strong,” said Federal Coordinating Officer William Vogel. “They withstood two Category 5 hurricanes in two weeks. They’re working hard to get life back to normal. We are doing all we can to help the territory recover and become better able to face future storms.”

Hurricane Irma struck on Sept. 6 and Maria struck Sept. 19. After the second storm, more than 100,000 residents lost power. A joint effort by the Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority, FEMA, Haugland Energy and other power companies restored power to 90 percent of eligible customers within 100 days. This week, 99 percent have power.

Months after two Category 5 hurricanes pummeled the United States Virgin Islands, officials said Tuesday that power has been restored to 92 percent of customers, a significant improvement from even a month ago, when about half of them remained in the dark.

Bringing power back up may help speed recovery in other areas that require basic infrastructure to operate, experts say, even as Gov. Kenneth E. Mapp estimated Tuesday that there was a long way to go after Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Hospitals that sustained major structural damage on the islands, home to some 103,000 people mainly on St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas, continue to evacuate patients in serious condition to the mainland, Mr. Mapp said in an interview. Schools that have managed to reopen are juggling double sessions to accommodate students, and tourism — the economy’s lifeblood — is still slow, Mr. Mapp said.

Actually, it is. Below is the rule:


Rule #11 - Respect People's Property - Include Only a Sentence or Two and a Link
If it is your own property ... your own words ... you are welcome to share as much of it as you would like.

If it is not your property, share only a sentence or two of the work, and a link to where we can read it in its entirety.

If you have the owner's permission ... include it with their property.
