ComEd Crews Mobilize to Assist in Puerto Rico Recovery

ComEd Crews Mobilize to Assist in Puerto Rico Recovery

"After the conversation, both teams agree that at no time has it been agreed to begin with the transfer of FEMA responsibilities to the Government of Puerto Rico as part of the transition process from the response phase to the recovery phase", the Official State Coordinator said in a statement Wednesday.

Audio will be available later today. San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz said many people in the USA territory need the water and food they have been getting from FEMA more than four months after Hurricane Maria devastated the island.

"This aid is not stopping", FEMA spokesman William Booher told the NYT.

"In my case, FEMA came two months after Hurricane Maria", Falcon said. "Electricity is still needed for the refrigeration of food, for the refrigeration of medicines", Luis Vega Ramos, a member of the Puerto Rico House of Representatives, told the Washington Post. "The reality is that we just need to look around". More than 133 days after the catastrophic storm, a third of residents on the USA territory remain without power, and some, without access to potable water.

"If we're giving free water and food, that means that families are not going to supermarkets to buy", De La Campa said.

Winnie Stachelberg, Executive Vice President of External Affairs, Center for American Progress: "The federal response to Puerto Rico's recovery from Hurricane Maria has been abysmal at best".

The island government appeared blindsided by the decision, saying it was still in talks with FEMA on a timetable for assuming control of food and water distribution.

"Maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story, but when you're drinking from a creek, when you don't have food for a baby, it's not a good news story..."This is a "people are dying" story", she said".

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz slammed FEMA over the possibility of ending aid to Puerto Rico at the Latino Victory Summit on Tuesday.

During the past decade, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico has been facing an island-wide recession. We have millions of liters of food/water stored in warehouses across the island, which we are continuing to provide to voluntary organizations / local officials who need them in their communities.

State Coordinating Officer and Secretary of the Department of Public Safety Héctor Pesquera released a statement on Wednesday addressing what occurred after initial reports said FEMA would end aid to the island.
