Limited flights resume to battered Puerto Rico

He didn't tweet once about Puerto Rico, where citizens have been largely without power, water or means of communication since Maria hit Wednesday as a Category 5 hurricane. The governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Roselló, told the cable news outlet that because the dam is composed of concrete and soil, erosion could cause the dam to break.

Category five Hurricane Maria ravaged the island of Dominica after making landfall on Monday, leaving 98% of buildings damaged and thousands without power - affecting nearly the entire 70,000 population. "Hurricane Maria has devastated our island", she said.

The Associated Press reported on Saturday the opening of the island's main port in the capital allowed 11 ships to bring in 1.6 million gallons of water, 23,000 cots, dozens of generators and food.

- A relief and recovery effort is being launched by the state of NY to help the people of hurricane ravaged Puerto Rico.

"What's foremost in my mind and many others, is trying to figure out the best way to help".

She added: "We are working day and night to identify the needs".

A local doctor plans to deliver medical supplies Tuesday to the hurricane-ravaged island of Puerto Rico.

Hurricane Maria is nearing the Turks and Caicos Islands as it continues its destructive path across the Caribbean.

"The devastation (in Puerto Rico) is beyond belief", Lopez said in an Instagram post.

"We are going to announce today and put in place today a statewide collection and financial contribution effort", Cuomo opened. We stand ready to provide that same assistance to communities impacted by Hurricane Maria.

Lopez, who was born in the Bronx, New York, but is of Puerto Rican heritage, is co-chairing New York state's recovery effort for the island territory. "With so much damage to infrastructure and facilities, this will be a challenge, but we remain optimistic about the resiliency of the people of Puerto Rico and their desire to do whatever is necessary to recover as quickly as possible".

Residents walk around a roadblock caused by a mudslide in Hayales de Coama, Puerto Rico, on September 24, 2017. Anybody we've have called is right there asking what they can do.
