Puerto Rico faces Food-Water Shortage after Dual Hurricanes, San Juan Mayor Lashes out at US Administration

  • Residents of Puerto Rico are reportedly facing unprecedented food, water, and fuel shortages after the back-to-back hurricanes Jose and Maria ravaged the “small island of 100 miles by 35 miles”. On Friday, San Juan’s mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz lashed out at the US federal administration for providing inadequate relief services. Cruz appealed directly to the US President Donald Trump, through a press conference, and begged him “to take charge and save lives”. However, President Trump has reportedly praised the relief effort and went on to say that 10,000 federal workers have been sent for relief work along with shipments of food and water to the small island.
