In the meantime, Jose and Erin Medina, along with Jose's sister Ana Medina, who lives with the couple in Sacramento, will continue trying to get updates from their family in Puerto Rico and help in whatever way they can. He childishly claimed that helping Puerto Rico was hard because it's "in the middle of an ocean ... a big ocean". "They are working exhaustively to lift themselves up".
"At least in this part of town, we haven't seen no military".
For many, it is personal. "It is a humanity effort". In addition, it puts a huge stress on the livelihood and incomes of existing families, he said. Power is required to run critical infrastructure such as water filtration and systems that assure communications with the outside world.
And then he lost everything.
But, he said, it's only a matter of time. Trump announced his intentions to "wipe away" the Puerto Rican debt, but his budget adviser, Mick Mulvaney, told the press not to take his words literally. "You don't need them anymore", the President remarked.
Company A is a distribution unit which can provide transportation for the movement of cargo, water and fuel. "I could easily get enough donations to fill several flights a day if we were making them".

Playing off the logo for her husband's hit Queen Village restaurant, Hungry Pigeon, Beddia drew a new design that pays homage to the (now Super Bowl contender) home team, and made plans to sell shirts with a portion of the proceeds donated to DirectRelief.org's Puerto Rico cleanup efforts.

While saying Cruz did "a very poor job" responding to Hurricane Maria, he spoke lovingly of the paper towel rolls he tossed to a crowd in a San Juan church in one of the most notorious moments from his day trip. "There's no time for that".
Then, Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico on Sept. 20, a Wednesday. "I guess other people have used it perhaps over the years but I've never noticed it. And it's a shame". Repealing the act is a start, but powerful maritime lobbying groups may get in the way.
