Puerto Rico got hit by hurricane Jose, Maria, and Irma. It seems to be the worst US territory to get hit by the 3 hurricanes in 2017. President Trump is trying to stop all of the fuel shipments because he says they have already put too many shipments out. However, most of Puerto Rico still does not have fuel, power, food, water, and most things you need. Many people unfortunately died during the hurricanes between flooding, or house being crushed or ruined, and many other reasons.
People now are still unfortunately dying because of the lack of food, also people can't get out of their houses because of this power issue and rescuers don't always know where these people are. Even people that saved up money from being prepared, or just had a lot of money, have it hard right now and are barely surviving. Money doesn't help when there is nothing to buy. Some rescuers had already started to rescue people before hurricanes hit to try to help by evacuating. More than half of Puerto Rico are still without water. Our thoughts are with them as they recover from this tragedy!
