BimBeriBon to host late-night fundraiser for Puerto Rico hurricane relief

BimBeriBon to host late-night fundraiser for Puerto Rico hurricane relief

Nearly three weeks later, almost the entire island is still left without power, and the locals are left to fend for themselves.

Next weekend the organizations will also be taking non perishable donations like water, batteries, and flashlights to send to those in Puerto Rico.

Nobody could have done what I've done for #PuertoRico with so little appreciation.

While 68 percents of the San Juan metro area has access to drinking water, just 31 percent does for the northern region of the island, according to Puerto Rico's government. David A. Graham of The Atlantic called Trump's response to the crisis in Puerto Rico "strange" and "disjointed". Musk agreed. Hours later, he announced he was delaying the unveiling of Tesla's new semi-truck and diverting resources, in part to "increase battery production for Puerto Rico and other affected areas".

In a press conference on September 26, Trump blamed geography for the delay. "But if you add one on top of one, on top of another one, on top of another, there's just a limit".

"At the end of the day, when you're able to provide temporary power to a hospital, or a dialysis center, it makes you feel good because you're able to provide that assistance", said Parkey. The group of workers had traveled to Puerto Rico with Cuomo on the first flight to depart for the capital, San Juan, since the Category 4 hurricane struck.

The federal government's waiver of the Jones Act for Puerto Rico will not be extended after it expires on Sunday night, a Department of Homeland Security official said on Monday. "NYPA technicians are very familiar with PREPA'S electric system, as it is similar to NY state's system, so I'm confident that our expertise will be of significant value on the ground as we continue to coordinate with federal and local partners to repower Puerto Rico".

"We're grateful for the support of the FCC and the Puerto Rican authorities as we work hard to see if it's possible to use Loon balloons to bring emergency connectivity to the island during this time of need", said Libby Leahy, a spokesman for Alphabet's X division. She sent the tweet out at least five times, each time tagging a different person or agency, including the United Nations and singer Ricky Martin. "And also when I walked in, the cheering was incredible", he said.

At present, 36 deaths have been reported directly resulting from Hurricane Maria and 8,349 refugees have been reported.

FEMA spokesperson William Booher told The Washington Post: "Our mission is to support the governor and his response priorities through the unified command structure to help Puerto Ricans recover and return to routines". In an emotional address mainly directed at President Trump, the mayor begged for help.
