Puerto Rico Governor: A Quarter Of the Island Should Have Power Next Month

US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump board Air Force One before departing for Puerto Rico Tuesday

"There's a lot of people here that don't have family, don't have no one to take them a bottle of water, or anything to drink". We're gonna have to wipe that out. "We have the opportunity to make a difference".

"The budget is out of whack?" This is not the time to pay any debt.

According to ABC News, as of today only 14 of Puerto Rico's hospitals had electricity, while 51 were "degraded" and in need of generators for power.

"This is a little personal for me", said Torres.

Fifteen Ohio National Guard Airmen will man the mobile kitchen, which is being deployed on its first real disaster.

An official confirmed the death toll was greater than what was being reported.


"Their mission is not going there to rescue, fight fires, or anything".

Assured, MBIA, and Ambac insure $8.2 bn, $8.4bn, and $9.6 bn of Puerto Rico debt, respectively, though exposure by credit varies significantly.

After that report, the country's secretary of public security, Hector Pesquera, confirmed to Pascual on Monday that the official death toll reported by the government did not reflect the actual number of dead.

A Puerto Rico business owner who flew to Chicago from the island on Wednesday said their help will go a long way.

Congress passed a bill last year setting up an oversight board which is supposed to be negotiating with bondholders. You be the judge.

Kimmel also reminded viewers of Trump's recent comment about Puerto Ricans wanting "everything to be done for them", adding, "Says the guy whose never carried a piece of luggage in his entire life".

An additional $500 million would be set aside to fight wildfires in the western United States.

Two major hurricanes - Irma and Maria - hit Puerto Rico in September, leaving over 90 percent of the island's citizens without power and half without running water.

Nearly 9 in 10 Democrats and 7 in 10 Republicans say the U.S. government has a major responsibility to help disaster victims in U.S. territories. Notice 2017-56 extends the usual 14-day absence period to 117 days, beginning Sept. 6, 2017 and ending Dec. 31, 2017, for the presence test for residency under the tax rules. If you have money in a mutual fund, your mutual fund may have a bit of money invested in Puerto Rican bonds. "Letting people know we support you". That's been clear for a while.

The island's government has been fighting a messy legal battle with its bondholders, who have filed dozens of cases that often involve parties with competing interests.

Adds Ramon Ortiz, 31, a lawyer originally from Ponce: "We're taping into our contacts and clients stateside who want to help".

Trump's most prominent critic in Puerto Rico, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, joined other officials at the air base for a briefing with him, shook the president's hand and said afterward she hoped he now understood the gravity of the situation. "That's all you've got to do".

Given the scale of the task, it seems likely bondholders will ultimately face an even bigger haircut than they were bracing for. What are you seeing there?

Another, calling themselves Rosetta Drone, said on Twitter: "People were calling this his "Katrina"; so this whole thing was about making himself look better than Bush".
