  • FEMA Administrator Brock Long briefs reporters at the National Response Coordination Center in FEMA Headquarters Monday

Rosselló sent House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a letter this week informing them of the situation, claiming that most businesses had closed after the hurricane passed the island, and that the post-hurricane clean-up efforts were putting extra pressure on an already dire fiscal situation.

Goya headquarters in Jersey City will coordinate the donation and delivery of 300,000 pounds of food and water, in addition to the donation from Goya U.S. facilities and worldwide. On Wednesday, he was in Puerto Rico to assess the horrific damage.

Puerto Rico's governor says he's ordered an investigation into food and water distribution and promised there would be "hell to pay" for those mishandling supplies after Hurricane Maria devastated the US territory. In response to concerns Kaine expressed during the visit about the relatively small size of the aid package the Trump Administration has proposed for Puerto Rico, compared to previous relief packages following Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, DHS officials in Puerto Rico assured Kaine that the recently announced aid request is just designed as an initial step until the island's long-term rebuilding needs can be assessed. That's less than half of the island's 3.4 million residents. He suggested that the federal government use the Army Corps of Engineers to help fix the infrastructure. "They also lack satellite and cell communication", said Kaine.

Blumenthal took the trip with four other senators. The DPA was passed in 1950 to give the federal government the ability to quickly mobilize vast private sector resources through the Defense Department to respond to crises. They could be without commercial power for months while crews work to restore stable power to the island. But with its aircraft still in the testing phase, the company said Friday that the engineers it's sent to Puerto Rico are focused on providing support to NetHope's teams. Still, he continues to defend his response to the natural disaster-particularly the paper towel toss.

As part of that commitment, FDA has an important mission to help Puerto Rico recover its medical product manufacturing base. And earlier this year, USA lawmakers appropriated an additional $300 million for the island, according to the report. "They're hanging in there, but they need help".
