A woman washes her hair in the Espiritu Santo river, along hurricane-damaged forest, more than two weeks after Hurricane Maria hit the island, on October 8, 2017 in Palmer, Puerto Rico.

As the rebuilding process continues in Hurricane Maria-ravaged Puerto Rico, there's a push in CT for further aid to the island's people.

Rossello said the island is grateful for the help it's gotten so far - the Trump administration last week asked for $29 billion in disaster aid for USA hurricane relief - but needs about $4.6 billion more money in an emergency "down payment on hurricane recovery efforts".

Water supply has been restored to roughly 60 percent of the island but some areas in the north remain at only 20 percent. The waiver has meant that Puerto Rico has been able to import food, fuel and supplies more quickly, and for half the costs, in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

She told authorities that she couldn't believe that her "kind, caring, quiet" boyfriend could commit such a heinous crime. Paddock's stay at The Ogden coincided with the "Life is attractive " music festival, held September 22-24.

"A lot of people are saying to us, how do you boil the water if you don't have the power to boil it, if you don't have the stove to turn on to boil the water?"

About 40 percent of Puerto Rico is still without water, and more than four in five residents don't have power.

Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

US President Donald Trump has defended throwing paper towels into a crowd of Puerto Ricans at a relief centre in the hurricane-ravaged territory earlier this week and lauded federal relief efforts. "All you have to do is just get on Facebook or turn on the tv to see the devastation", said Brenda Donato, whose family lives in Puerto Rico.

Water, food, clothing, and hygiene products will be packaged up this week and be sent to a hospital in Williston. The four hurricanes that have struck the continental U.S. and its Caribbean territories so far this year have "strained" the resources of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

After reading out the tweets, ABC host Martha Raddatz asked Long for his response on "This Week". William Kotler were some of the first people to receive provisional medical licenses in Puerto Rico.

Begnaud, who has reported extensively on the local and federal response in the wake of the deadly hurricane, reports that US government and local officials say that water still needs to be boiled in Puerto Rico where there is water.

"In regards to resources, of course we're strained", Long said.
