Family ties: New York rushes aid to ravaged Puerto Rico

Bucs receivers Mike Evans and De Sean Jackson both kneeled during the national anthem in protest before Sunday's game at the Vikings

Earlier on Tuesday, Trump vowed that federal assistance was on its way to Puerto Rico, a day after he commented for the first time in days about the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria since it made landfall on the us territory. Some observers had claimed that the government has been far less efficient in Puerto Rico compared to its recent aid drives in Texas and Florida. Instead, on Twitter he blamed the island for its problems, as if residents allowed a Category 4 hurricane to ravage their homes to spite him.

Now Forster says two more members plan to head to Puerto Rico very soon, one of whom is leaving tomorrow. No way to communicate with others? Several people I spoke with said food and help isn't reaching those who need it the most.

Authorities say it could be months before power is restored on the island.

While Puerto Rico continues its recovery mission, lawmakers back in Washington are urging President Donald Trump, Congress and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to authorize more aid to the region. Two Annapolis police detectives have relatives on the islands, so they've made a decision to do what they can to help.

These findings don't just point to the sad state of affairs of the USA education system.

The destruction is plain to see in Puerto Rico and the USA and British Virgin Islands, which were hit hard by Maria.

"The problem is there is food, there was water, there's supplies, there's gas, but they're just not being transported", she said. "And it has been rough, it has been hard", McKay said. "Let's get the funding for Puerto Rico", said Governor Ricardo Rosselló.
