"Now is no time to be arguing over these issues, when residents of the island are suffering". But there are limitations, she said Saturday.

"As we support our customers, DISH Cares, our corporate social responsibility program, is assisting in recovery efforts with crucial communication tools serving the broader community", added Pagani.

It seemed to begin when the mayor criticised Acting Director of Homeland Security Elaine Duke's comments that despite reports of supplies being trapped in Puerto Rican ports and bureaucratic holdups in distributing aid, "this is a good news story".

Goya headquarters in Jersey City will coordinate the donation and delivery of 300,000 pounds of food and water, in addition to the donation from Goya U.S. facilities and worldwide. As a result, it is hard to know the true extent of damages in Puerto Rico, and how citizens are coping with the aftermath.

Puerto Rico bond insurer Assured Guaranty Ltd (N:) said late on Friday it voluntarily withdrew a complaint that challenged the legality of the island's fiscal turnaround plan, citing the devastating impact of Hurricane Maria.

Some critics have argued that aid could have been preemptively sent to the area around Puerto Rico - that, in other words, the United States didn't need to wait until after the devastation to begin responding. Google parent company Alphabet has proposed launching balloons over the island to bring Wi-Fi service to hard-to-reach places, as it has in other parts of the world. Many cell towers and power plants are still down, making communication hard.

But because of the disastrous conditions, only 30 percent of the police force were able to get to work.

The damage wreaked by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico in September 2017 could have serious repercussions for patients who rely on medicines and healthcare products manufactured there.

Menendez is the highest ranking Latino in the U.S. Congress and has been a key figure in getting Congress to authorize hurricane relief to help to the U.S. citizens living in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands impacted by Hurricanes Maria and Irma.

"There has been great collaboration with the [Department of Defense], with the federal government, with the state governments", Rossello said on MSNBC Monday. Still, he continues to defend his response to the natural disaster-particularly the paper towel toss.

FEMA spokesperson William Booher told The Washington Post: "Our mission is to support the governor and his response priorities through the unified command structure to help Puerto Ricans recover and return to routines".

The island's infrastructure is the main culprit behind the lagging aid, not the USA government.
