Don't forget about Puerto Rico and the rest of the Caribbean. It's getting kind of lost in the goo of news and other disasters.

Thanks for bringing this up poseidonlost.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello begs Pentagon for more resources in wake of Hurricane Maria

https://nydailynews.com/news/national/puerto-rico-governor-begs-pentagon-resources-maria-article-1.3520136

Hurricane Maria has left many of the 3.4 million residents in Puerto Rico with scarce amounts of food, no power — and begging for assistance.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello urged the Pentagon for more search-and-rescue help and humanitarian resources to help overcome the island’s “complete devastation.”

Rossello also called on Congress to treat Puerto Rico like a state in any comprehensive emergency aid package.

“Whatever relief package we have, whatever impact we have, we are U.S. citizens," Rossello told Politico Sunday night. "We shouldn’t be the lesser for it."

Puerto Rico gov. deems Maria worst disaster in island's history

According to FEMA, 4,000 U.S. Army Reserve members have been deployed to Puerto Rico and more than 1,600 National Guard troops have responded to Hurricane Maria.

Additionally, the U.S. Northern Command, which provides military support for civil authorities, is aiding in the relief efforts, FEMA said.

It may not be enough.

Every little bit helps.

The worst part of any hurricane is what comes after. Unless you actually get smashed by a tree or 15 foot waves during the storm of course, but survive 6-12 hours of that and you're possibly facing weeks and months of desperation. They're facing a weakened power grid from one storm and now a destroyed power grid from a direct hit by another. I can only imagine. Keep them in mind y'all.

Also, I would say they're even more eligible for federal aid, because they are directly under federal jurisdiction and are only federal citizens, compared to most of the rest of us U.S. citizens who are also citizens of our particular state. Here in Texas we're getting help from our state government as well.

I think there's a special place in hell for those who politicize natural disasters. The logistic problems associated with Puerto
Rico are astronomical. I don't think any president could handle this any better than Trump possibly could. But now comes the politicizing and inevitable backlash from the other side. All while nobody at all should depend on the government to help them every time something bad happens. This bickering pushes personal responsibility and disaster preparedness deeper down the memory hole.

And jeeze, let's just make Puerto Rico a state already. Throw a monkey wrench in the IRS machine and limit just that much more federal control.  ;D

Hurricane Maria Death Toll 70 TIMES MORE Than We Were Told
http://www.theorganicprepper.com/death-toll-hurricane-maria/





The official death toll in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria is only 64 people. With the devastation wrought last September by the powerful storm, many people questioned the veracity of that number. And it looks like they may have had good cause. A new report from the New England Journal of Medicine puts the number at 70 times more than that – they estimate that 4645 people perished due to the hurricane, and say that this is a very conservative estimate.

Quote
Quantifying the effect of natural disasters on society is critical for recovery of public health services and infrastructure. The death toll can be difficult to assess in the aftermath of a major disaster. In September 2017, Hurricane Maria caused massive infrastructural damage to Puerto Rico, but its effect on mortality remains contentious. The official death count is 64. Spam_A Spam_B Using a representative, stratified sample, we surveyed 3299 randomly chosen households across Puerto Rico to produce an independent estimate of all-cause mortality after the hurricane. Respondents were asked about displacement, infrastructure loss, and causes of death. We calculated excess deaths by comparing our estimated post-hurricane mortality rate with official rates for the same period in 2016…

…Our results indicate that the official death count of 64 is a substantial underestimate of the true burden of mortality after Hurricane Maria. Our estimate of 4645 excess deaths from September 20 through December 31, 2017, is likely to be conservative since subsequent adjustments for survivor bias and household-size distributions increase this estimate to more than 5000. These adjustments represent one simple way to account for biases, but we have made our data publicly available for additional analyses. (source)
