All Of Puerto Rico Without Power In Maria’s Brutal Wake

The eye of Hurricane Maria exited Puerto Rico on Wednesday afternoon, but only after carving a vicious path that toppled trees, sheared roofs, engorged rivers and obliterated the electric grid — cutting off power for the entire island of 3.5 million people.

By 2 p.m., the weakened storm had moved into open water but the danger was far from over.

The top winds were still clocking in at 115 miles per hour – still a major life-threatening Category 3 storm – and punishing rain was expected to drench Puerto Rico through the rest of the day. The U.S. National Weather Service was predicting up to 18 inches of rain through Friday, with “life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.” News footage showed the muddy Guayama River overflowing and rushing in a brown torrent down streets .

“The truth is the danger continues,” Gov. Ricardo Rosselló told the island’s largest newspaper, El Nuevo Día. “It’s going to keep raining hard. Flood zones are at critical levels. We’re still going to have a full day of rain.”

    When Trump talked about bringing construction back to America, he didn’t even see this coming. There will be such a call for men/women in every aspect of construction to rebuild Florida, Pureto Rico and Texas millions upon millions will be needed. Did any of you know that Israel sent teams to Texas, Florida and Mexico for the earthquake and I don’t doubt they are sending them to Pureto Rico. Nobody ever gives us a hand except Israel. Could use some of those billions of dollars Saudi Arabia has accumulated from sucking us for oil money since Nixon made a deal with them years ago. Where are our allies when we need them?

    God Bless all who have suffered in these storms and may they recover quickly. We survived Irma without a scratch and thought about all those who didn’t and prayed for them.
