Puerto Rico faces growing crisis in the wake of Hurricane Maria

Major commercial airlines are still struggling to fly to Puerto Rico after last week's hurricane.

She is also a member of the Puerto Rican Professional Association of Rhode Island.

Crowley's Isla Grande terminal in San Juan incurred minor damage during the weather event and is expected to be open for business from 8 a.m.to 12 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 23, and Sunday, Sept. 24.

My name is Jamie Vega Hamilton. Meanwhile, their loved ones here in Albany are desperately hoping they are okay.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency's Urban Search & Rescue teams, arriving by air Saturday, found a cut-off neighborhood in Puerto Rico.

Villaronga said his family rode out a hurricane as a child and remembers adults going out in boats to save residents. "So it's a very dire and desperate situation".

Speldrich says she is at her wit's end. "I don't know where she's at", Gonzalez. "Are you using all these routes to try to get word?" I am kind of nervous. "We of course realize there is a lot more work to be done and we wish we could do more, as much as we are trying to help - and they do need a lot of help", added Flying Crew Chief Byron Catu. The student government association organized the donation drive at the big Governor Mifflin-Exeter Township Senior High football game.

A damaged petrol station in Humacao, Puerto Rico. "90% of the island is done for". "I'm so proud of these kids", said Karen Redford, a teacher and co-advisor for SGA. The damage was so extensive, the 64-year-old retiree said, that she didn't think the power would be turned back on until Christmas.

While bad hurricane seasons would happen whether or not the climate is changing, mountains of evidence suggest warming ocean temperatures make intense storms more common, and rising sea levels contribute to devastating storm surges during hurricanes.

Angelo Ortiz helped organize the aid effort. It's a blessing in disguise.

After lamenting that Puerto Rico had been "absolutely obliterated" by Maria, US President Donald Trump spoke with Governor Rossello Thursday night and promised to speed up relief efforts. We take care of our own, and we help each other. The economy already was weak, people were leaving the island behind and with it, family, because of the financial problems. Hopefully with this we take the debt away, we restart. In particular, the exact strength and position of two high-pressure features by early next week will dictate just how close Maria will get the East Coast.

Even with patchy information from Puerto Rico, many in Northeast Ohio seem cautiously optimistic and talk proudly about the community's resilience.

"I'm from here. I believe we have to step up to the task".

However, instead of waiting, they're jumping into action.

They are seeking normal supplies as well as construction supplies like generators, extension cords and shovels.
