Puerto Rico's Hurricane María Proves Once Again that Natural Disasters Are Never Natural

Puerto Rico is still recovering from the devastation sustained by Hurricane Maria since the landfall on September 20. And much of the countryside is still struggling to access basic necessities, including food, fresh water and cash.

The widespread destruction of the landscape forced him to make some script changes, he told Deadline.

A few words from US President Donald Trump last week stripped away any expectation that holders of Puerto Rico's general obligation bonds would still see a recovery of 50 cents or more on the dollar. This is a "people are dying" story.

Scenes of devastation from the U.S. Virgin Islands. Hurricane Irma followed by Hurricane Maria devastated the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and other islands in the Caribbean.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday the trip would focus on local recovery efforts, "which we're fully committed to". Don't let the Puerto Rican government play the victim and fool you.

Weaver said she felt a "special sisterhood" with Yulin Cruz because both women felt forced to publicly challenge the federal government to do more to help their communities.

The uncertainty of when, exactly, Puerto Rico will recover from the storm was part of the reason Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart said the department was welcoming new students and teachers to the state.

However, the response from the USA government has so far been underwhelming. Together with The Boston Foundation, we have established the Massachusetts United for Puerto Rico fund, a fund that is dedicated to the relief and reconstruction of Puerto Rico and will support any Puerto Rican person arriving in Boston and the Commonwealth who have been impacted by Hurricane Maria.
