MA officers travel to help in Puerto Rico

10 October, 2017, 00:36 | Author: Chad Mckenzie

A local group is getting ready to go to Puerto Rico on Sunday.

"Many of these officers have family, friends and loved ones on the island, making this mission not only an important professional response, but a deeply personal one as they bring their skills, empathy and compassion to those still left suffering in the wake of a devastating hurricane season", the Boston Police Department said. "We're just people trying to help people".

Volunteers can be heard cheering and clapping as the supplies come in.

Nearby museums including the Science Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum were evacuated with Tube stations sealed off by police. Det Con Darren Case, from the force's roads and transport team, said he appreciated "the concern and alarm this incident caused".

"They say they're OK", Lopez-Flohr said.

The move may temporarily ease Puerto Rico's financial problems as it struggles to get back on its feet after Maria hit last month, destroying the electrical grid and leaving most of the island's 3.4 million inhabitants without power.

"We're keeping a close watch on the most critical medical products", Gottlieb said. Recovery may be a long and hard process, but with a united mentality, Curbelo affirms that we can "restore Puerto Rico to the attractive island it is". "They have been reached by helicopters only and those people are still waiting", he said.

According to the NGO, almost 60 percent of children in Puerto Rico live below the poverty line.

The donations are coming in from all over, including a large van packed with supplies from the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.

The lawsuit contended the fiscal plan, approved in March by the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico, violated provisions of the 2016 Puerto Rico rescue law known as PROMESA and the U.S. Constitution.
