Puerto Rico tournament moves to SC due to Hurricane Maria

Puerto Rico tournament moves to SC due to Hurricane Maria

"She has been working 24/7 [while] you have been GOLFING", Miranda said to Trump Saturday (Sept. 30) after he critiqued Cruz's leadership in Puerto Rico following the relief efforts in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. This is the time to show our 'true colors.' We can not be distracted by anything else, " she tweeted, along with photos of herself meeting with residents and rescue workers, wading hip-deep through a flooded street and comforting an elderly woman.

Conditions are not favorable for development into a tropical storm, but locally heavy rainfall is expected over the Leeward Islands, including Dominica; the U.S. Virgin Islands; and Puerto Rico.

Stay on top of breaking news stories with the ABC11 News App " When our state was devastated with severe flooding during Hurricane Matthew a year ago, many states came to our assistance in our time of need", said Governor Cooper.

CHANG: I'm good. Thank you for joining us.

The crux of the Jones Act-a law passed in 1920 to protect US maritime shipping-requires all goods carried by water from one American port to another to be shipped on USA -flagged ships that were built in the United States, are owned by US citizens, and crewed by American citizens or permanent residents.

"In these days, where basic resources are scarce, especially light and water, let us enter into personal and community prayer with the Lord", they said, and urged everyone to continue their "gestures of solidarity with those brothers and sisters in need".

"One of the things this disaster shows is that it's important to have resilience", she says. And most of the people that - a lot of the people that work in the tourism industry live paycheck to paycheck, work minimum wage.

Rivera said he thinks the federal government was not prepared to handle the magnitude of the storm. So many lifesaving supplies are on the island, but until they get to the people who need them, they have little value.

"Actually, I was asking for help - I wasn't saying anything nasty about the president", Cruz said on MSNBC.

The more than 157,000 pounds of supplies came from a number of different donors throughout the city, and even from out of state donors from Rhode Island and Connecticut, Rivera said.

Rossello has called the widespread heavy damage to Puerto Rico's homes, roads and infrastructure unprecedented, though he has praised the USA government's relief efforts.

Cruz responded, "This is a people-are-dying story". Officials said Puerto Rico requested assistance from NC National Guard through an Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) request with NC Emergency Management to aid in recovery. GlobalGiving, a crowdfunding site for charities, is trying to raise $5 million for local relief and recovery efforts.

"We now have three Satellite trucks on a FEMA barge due to land next week and three more on the way [Thursday] morning", Marsh says. Only 11 of the island's 69 hospitals have power or fuel supply and nearly half of the population is without potable water, according to a FEMA briefing issued Tuesday morning.

According to Morningstar, 15 municipal bond funds have 10% or more of their portfolios in Puerto Rican bonds.

Financial donations are being accepted by United for Puerto Rico, the Salvation Army, the Red Cross and the Puerto Rican Congress of New Jersey and its New Jersey Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief to purchase products to quickly and efficiently meet the most urgent needs of disaster victims.
