Rafael Robles-Ortiz kisses his mother Josefina Ortiz who is staying at the Hermanitas de los Ancianos Desamparados facility which cares for the elderly as they deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Maria on September 26, 2017 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. SUNY Student Assembly president and trustee Marc J. Cohen issued a statement saying, "We wholeheartedly support this measure, which will help to ease one significant financial burden for these incredible Americans as they work to rebuild their lives".

"When our communities call out for help, we can come together and solve the biggest challenges by summoning the best of ourselves". She said they will be helping to relieve local physicians at a rural hospital who haven't had a break since the storm hit. "We're going to have to wipe that out". Warming oceans, for example, pack more energy and moisture into such storms, making them more treacherous when they strike.

Students and faculty of the FSU law school will greet ten 2 and 3 year law students when they arrive from Puerto Rico on Monday. "He is so busy getting his ego involved in these ridiculous back-and-forth arguments about things that don't matter to anyone but him that he is really not managing our country".

Puerto Rico had already filed for bankruptcy with a USA bankruptcy court earlier this year, and it is struggling to pay for more than $70.0 billion in unpaid bills.

"It was destroyed. It wasn't Puerto Rico".

"My family is stranded there", he said. The U.S. territory's government counted two suicides among the death toll, which now stands at 34, and with many communities still waiting for power and clean water, there is concern about others reaching a breaking point.

He said Trump has demonstrated "less divisive moments" as president, particularly his deal with Democrats to put off a clash over the federal budget.

President Trump on Sunday dedicated a golf trophy to the victims of recent powerful hurricanes that tore through Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, all the while defending the government's response to the disasters. Conversely, 48 percent approve of that, and just 27 percent disapprove.

Vice President Mike Pence is taking an aerial tour of hurricane damage to the U.S. Virgin Islands.

"You have lost too much, but you have not lost everything", Clinton said at a memorial service four days after the bombing. Ten schools opened Monday in San Juan and a dozen more are slated to open this week. Congress said they would need to sign off on more federal money for those states and USA territories still reeling from the powerful wind and record high flood levels.
