THE AWFUL AFTERMATH

(I FOUND THE VIDEO)

~AMERICAN CITIZENS IN CRISIS~

Last Sunday, November 5, CBS 60 Minutes reported on the aftermath of Hurricane María. I watched it and my heart continued to sink.

I was looking for the video to share it with you. I found it through Facebook.

Today is the 53rd day after the hurricane hit. 

Progress has been slow and the spotlight of the main stream media has moved on to other events.

Let the video speak for itself!

(I don’t agree with all the provided in the video. The visual are all true).

Puerto Ricans in the island have endured the longest blackout in American history following a direct hit from Hurricane Maria. Due to a multitude of factors, some say the lights won’t be coming back on anytime soon.

It’s safe to say that of all the places in the country, the one that is suffering the most right now is the hurricane-ravaged island of Puerto Rico.

Most people probably don’t think of it as being part of the United States, but the people who live in Puerto Rico certainly do. It’s been a territory since 1898, and its 3.4 million people are U.S. citizens.

For the past 53 days, most of them have been without power, the longest blackout in American history.

FEMA says it has distributed more food and water there than any disaster its ever been involved in. Damages could reach $90 billion and Puerto Rico is already bankrupt. There has been some finger pointing about the speed and effectiveness of the relief and recovery effort, but the misery there has much more to do with nature.

When Hurricane María arrived on the morning of September 20th, it was largely unheralded and never projected to hit the continental United States, which was already suffering hurricane fatigue. But the storm tore into Puerto Rico with sustained winds of 155 miles an hour and then began a slow 12-hour crawl across the countryside, with the center of the storm enveloping the entire island.

“I think the majority of people will hope to have their power up in — in January, maybe February.

I would predict there’s some people on that last mile that are gonna be close to spring or summer before they get those very, very last houses.”

THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP

ANYONE DOUBT ANYMORE?

If you notice, I wrote his name correctly.

The only reason for this is because it’s the book’s title. For me he’s been Drumpf, the original name when his ‘ancestors’ immigrated to this country.

The book is amazingly well done, thoroughly documented and scary as hell!

I’m just in the early chapters.

If you care about this country, get educated and don’t keep falling for the master of con men of this lifetime.

BLineNormal

This is not normal.

Since the start of Drumpf’s presidential run, one question has quietly but urgently permeated the observations of concerned citizens: What is wrong with him? Constrained by the American Psychiatric Association’s “Goldwater rule,” which inhibits mental health professionals from diagnosing public figures they have not personally examined, many of those qualified to answer this question have shied away from discussing the issue at all. The public has thus been left to wonder whether he is mad, bad, or both.

In THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP, twenty-seven psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health experts argue that, in Mr. Drumpf’s case, their moral and civic “duty to warn” America supersedes professional neutrality.

They then explore Drumpf’s symptoms and potentially relevant diagnoses to find a complex, if also dangerously mad, man.

THE DAY TIME STOOD STILL IN PUERTO RICO

MASSIVE MORAL FAILURE!!

It’s been 39 days since María battered and shattered my country, Puerto Rico.

Many stories have come out after this natural disaster.

Still, on this day, mot much has changed.

Why?

The answer to why is multi-factorial. 

However, there’s no denial that his has been a

MASSIVE HUMANITARIAN FAILURE.

Let this video do the ‘talking’.

What is happening in Puerto Rico?

Since the storm made landfall on September 20, Hurricane María has wreaked havoc on the island, causing a level of widespread destruction and disorganization paralleled by few storms in American history.  Thirty nine days after the storm abated, most of the island’s residents still lack access to electricity and clean water.

From a meteorological standpoint, María was nearly a worst-case scenario for the territory: The center of a huge, nearly Category 5 hurricane made a direct hit on Puerto Rico, lashing the island with wind and rain for longer than 30 hours.

“It was as if a 50- to 60-mile-wide tornado raged across Puerto Rico, like a buzz saw,” Jeff Weber, a meteorologist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, has told Vox.

Maria has many elements of a “catastrophic event,” and not just a disaster, says Tricia Wachtendorf, a professor of sociology at the University of Delaware who studies disaster relief.

~~HURRICANE MARIA~~

Video captures Hurricane María’s terrible impact on Puerto Rico.
On Tuesday afternoon, 34 days after the hurricane made landfall in Puerto Rico, the National Weather Service in San Juan posted an unassuming YouTube link to their Twitter account. I’ve never seen anything like it posted by the National Weather Service before.

The video is an 11 minute tour of the island, complete with drone flyovers and somber piano music. It shows the enormous scale of one of the worst humanitarian disasters in US history, as thousands of people continue to struggle for survival.

There’s footage from all corners of the island, showing washed out bridges, flattened homes, and broken infrastructure. The camera flies over a wind farm in Naguabo and a solar farm in Humacao – both destroyed in the storm. In nearly every shot, there are twisted trees, stripped of their leaves.

Though this video was intended as a visual chronicle to accompany a meteorological report, it’s striking on its own.

The Forgotten Puerto Rico …. “😥 El Puerto Rico Olvidado …. Things are NOT on way back to NORMAL 😥 …. “!!


~~October 28, 2017~~ 

THE FORGOTTEN PUERTO RICO

I’ve been keeping tabs on the ‘official death toll’ in Puerto Rico.

During Drumpf’s shameful visit to the Island, the ‘certified number’ was 17.

Keep in mind, most of the recovery activity is centered in the metro area.

The mountain towns are forgotten.

Puerto Rico is mostly mountainous with large coastal areas in the north and south. The main mountain range is called “La Cordillera Central” (The Central Range).

The highest elevation in Puerto Rico, Cerro de Punta. 1,339 meters (4,393 ft), is located in this range.

Lin-Manuel Miranda …. “🇵🇷 Unprecedented …. “That’s All I had to Offer 🇵🇷 …. “!!

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA TO DRUMPF

‘You’re going straight to hell’

The actions of the ‘so-called president’ towards the human crisis that is involving Puerto Rico after being battered and ravaged by Hurricane María couldn’t have been any worse. Any Puerto Rican could have said the same things, over worse, about the lack of credible and adequate rescue and restoration response.

I feel just like Lin-Manuel.

The American government has totally failed the 3.4+ millions of American citizens who will in this possession/colony/territory of the mighty, imperialistic U.S. of A.

Chris Hayes to Lin-Manuel Miranda For Hate-Tweeting Trump

~~Published on Oct 6, 2017~~

Last weekend, September 30, Drumpf woke up and decided to pick up his phone and shoot off some tweets slamming the San Juan mayor and telling the Puerto Rican people they were expecting everything to be done for them in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

Following Drumpf’s highly criticized tweets, Broadway star Lin-Manuel Miranda shot back with some tweets of his own, telling the president to go “straight to hell.”

Puerto Rico Update …. “🇵🇷 Two Weeks in …. It’s an Exercise in Survival 🇵🇷 …. “!!

PUERTO RICO UPDATE

​”AN EXERCISE IN SURVIVIAL”

This is a post written by my very dear friend Suzy P., who currently lives in Illinois. She spent plenty years in Puerto Rico while her husband Grant worked there.

Suzy absorbed the Puerto Rican culture and ways as second nature. 

Today, from a distance, she feels like we do.

Her soul and her heart ache as much as mine. 

This is a thread written by her husband’s boss just one day ago.

Today, Oct 6th, Grant and I finally heard from Grant’s former boss in Moca, Puerto Rico. Frank was the plant manager for the Baxter Fenwal plant in San Germán for many years.

Frank is one of the most calm, capable, resourceful men that we know.

Grant spoke to Frank the night before Hurricane Maria hit and he was well prepared for the hurricane.

He tells us today that the past two weeks have been truly an exercise in survival.

BLine

Here is the series of text messages we got from Frank today

“Devastation here. No drinking water, running generator, gas supply (on the island) still stabilizing, cell signal now intermittent. We are OK. Bank access limited. Supermarkets having generator issues.

These first two weeks have been an exercise in survival.

Prioritization, focus, luck.”

Dominica Hurricane Maria

“Difficult environment. Eye passed over Moca, 35 minutes, second half horrible. Wind damage extensive in all west coast towns, Aguada, Aguadilla, flooding on coasts, massive erosion.

I’ve lost 11 pounds. Dehydration.

Nightmare scenario – we got nuked.

People helping each other.”

Erosion

“I have never seen or felt anything like this. During the height of the storm, I thought a few times we were history. It felt like a concussive force. And it wouldn’t stop. Rincón sustained significant damage.

Downed power lines, land slides, flooding.

Roads still marginal.”

MAria

After Grant offered to come down and help, Frank wrote:

“Don’t come here, you’ll never get out”.

(Some airlines report they have waiting lists of over 20,000 people wanting to leave the island).

Puerto Rico Faces Extensive Damage After Hurricane Maria
