Puebloan frantic, trying to reach family members in Puerto Rico

Puebloan frantic, trying to reach family members in Puerto Rico

"That's why we can't contact my family", Quinones said.

At least 27 lives have been lost around the Caribbean, including at least 15 people killed on hard-hit Dominica.

Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico two days ago but its effects could be felt for quite some time, CBS News reports. "All we can do is try to gather as much as we can and when we can send, send it".

"If it is not an emergency situation, people should remain in their homes or shelters", he was quoted as saying by El Nuevo Día. Maria hit about two weeks after Hurricane Irma pounded two other U.S. Virgin Islands: St. Thomas and St. John.

Rescuers have already saved 700 people from floodwaters Gov. Rossello told CNN. He's heard that supplies are slowly trickling into the northern part of the island but that transportation problems have made it more hard to get aid to the area where he grew up. That process if being complicated by the continued rain and a tangled web of damaged roads and bridges.

With the island's communication infrastructure destroyed, amateur radio operators are serving as the primary means of direction for recovery efforts. Ninety-five percent of cell phone sites are out of service and the island is entirely without power. "This is the one way that we "puertorros" in the states can help". "We have created this that will help rebuild our island".

Charles Bradley, Beloved Soul Singer, Dead at 68
Bradley, known as the " Screaming Eagle of Soul " for his impassioned performances, famously found musical success late in life. Bradley passed away Saturday from cancer, which he was diagnosed with in October 2016.

"After touring damaged neighborhoods across St. Croix, my prayer is for renewed strength and resolve to rebuild all of our islands in the wake of these two awful storms", said U.S. Virgin Islands Governor Kenneth Mapp.

Maria looked unlikely to hit the continental United States but its storm swells will reach the southeastern coast from Friday, the NHC said. "There's still a great deal of flooding", he said.

The collection at the club, which continues through Sunday from 12-8 p.m., represents part of the common concern in Northeast Ohio's Puerto Rican community.

After riding out the storm, the first Category 4 hurricane to strike the island in almost a century, residents in San Juan set about the massive task of cleaning up their city. The island commonwealth of 3.4 million USA citizens is dependent on sea commerce in normal times for food and fuel, including fuel oil for its power plants.

Felix Delgado, mayor of the northern coastal city of Catano, said: "Months and months and months and months are going to pass before we can recover from this". "We're bringing large scale generators with us that can power necessary facilities and 36,000 bottles of water, 10,000 meals that are ready to eat, 3,000 canned goods, 1,400 cots, 1,400 blankets, 1,400 pillows and 1,400 flashlights".
