Pitbull has lent his private jet to help cancer patients following the hurricane that ripped through Puerto Rico. "Top priorities", he said would be "food, water and medical". And the governor said, we are doing a great job.

Now that Vicens knows her daughters survived the storm, she is focusing on bringing them home while bringing attention to the plight of her people who have been disconnected by disaster.

In light of the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Maria, Reading officials and nonprofit organizations said they expect some in Puerto Rico with ties to the city will move to the area.

The administration has been facing criticism for its response to the damage on the island that is home to more than 3 million US citizens. Instead he tweeted that the territory already had "broken infrastructure & massive debt".

About 44 percent of the population is without drinking water, the Department of Defense said, and 58 of Puerto Rico's 69 hospitals are without fuel or power.

"When we call for help, we're not calling for "give me a little bit more food" help we're calling for "give a baby some water" help", she said.

"We're dramatically increasing the federal footprint that's there", Long said, speaking outside the White House.

Rubio said during a Facebook live Wednesday that he hasn't been to Puerto Rico yet, because he didn't want to be another body taking up precious space on one of the limited flights to the island.

"We know there are DOD elements helping today, and all the service members involved are working very hard, but we are concerned that the scale of DOD assets supporting the operation are inadequate", the Democrats wrote in a letter to the president.

Jhonathan Rivera, the Co-Founder of Puerto Ricans United, said he hasn't been able to get in touch directly with his family.

Many on Twitter criticized what they called Trump's "heartless" and "victim-blaming" response.

In the last 24 hours, Trump appears to finally, slowly, be learning the lessons of Katrina. But the extraordinary damage to Puerto Rico requires an extraordinary allocation of additional funds for reconstruction outside the scope of traditional FEMA efforts.
