"It was impossible to enjoy myself", she said, adding that luckily, relatives were able to get in touch with her and tell her that her family was OK.

The extreme limitations continued as videos have shown crowds waiting in the airport without air conditioning, hoping to make their way out of Puerto Rico.

Zuckerberg also says Facebook is donating ads to "get critical information to people in the region on how to get assistance and stay safe".

"The airport is chaotic", said De Valle's sister, Jenyvette Vega, 28, who moved to New York five years ago. "And people in the [U.S. are saying], 'I want to go, I want to go back, I want to help'".

The town was submerged in mud after water from a swollen river flooded the area.

"By then, I had access to local newspapers".

The goods will be shipped on an American Airlines flight Thursday.

Morales said his brother in Houston got through to their father's cellphone Monday, but someone else answered before the connection was lost.

"That's our juice bar", she said with a smile.
