FEATURING SAMY NEMIR OLIVARES – The devastation from Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico continues to mount. Although shipping restrictions have been lifted, the majority of Puerto Ricans are still without power. Clean drinking water is emerging as one of the biggest needs. In the next few weeks there may be a large number of evacuees to the mainland US.
Meanwhile Donald Trump spent his weekend at one of his golf resorts and dedicated a golf trophy to the people of Puerto Rico. He plans to visit the island on Tuesday, nearly 2 weeks after the hurricane hit.
