Puerto Rico Governor Updates Pence on Recovery Efforts

The officers will travel to the island in three waves for two weeks each.

State Police troopers preparing to head down to Puerto Rico for recovery efforts.

As of Friday, about 90 percent of Puerto Rico is still without power, while the death toll has climbed to 36 since Hurricane Maria made landfall on September 20.

The goal is to fill up a large truck and have the donations flown to Puerto Rico with the help of Jet Blue by the end of the month.

Assured Guaranty, along with a second insurer MBIA Inc, filed their lawsuit against the island's government and a federally appointed financial oversight board on May 3, a day after Puerto Rico announced a historic restructuring of its public debt.

White House officials cautioned against rumors that Trump would make a speech revealing his decision next Thursday. And we're not going to announce what actions we'll be taking until that moment comes".

Santos says it's not an option for her and her girls not to help and many volunteers have similar feelings.

Medicines made in Puerto Rico include AstraZeneca's cholesterol drug Crestor, antibiotics and drugs for inflammation from Pfizer and Roche's Accu-Chek blood sugar test strips for diabetics.

Frederico said the focus should be on restoration and relief for Puerto Rico, not on their arguments, at least for the time being.

"We have 12,300 DoD personnel here in Puerto Rico, more than 600 FEMA and more than 2,000 EMACs from 25 states in Puerto Rico serving through the emergency", he said, adding that the hospital ship USNS Comfort is serving around Puerto Rico with a capacity of about 1,000 patients. They're taking supplies and bringing tools to jump in and help rebuild the island after Hurricane Maria. Those facilities will benefit not only those areas, but also the island as a whole, he pointed out.

"We are just hoping they come back safe and sound", the commissioner said.
