Tears of relief as aid starts to reach remote parts of Puerto Rico

first_img…for safety. Thank you to the Governor of P.R. and to all of those who are working so closely with our First Responders. Fantastic job!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 1, 2017 albery.arch/Instagram (SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico) — President Donald Trump’s impending visit to storm-ravaged Puerto Rico and his public criticism of the U.S. territory’s most prominent mayor appear to be the last thing on many people’s minds on the island.The vast majority of households and businesses in Puerto Rico still had no electricity as of Saturday, 10 days after Hurricane Maria wrought destruction on the island.But there is hope as aid begins to reach even some of the territory’s remote regions.ABC News traveled with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) officials to Puerto Rico, including to some areas that have been cut off from communication with the rest of the island since Maria hit.In the mountainous town of Juncos, locals cried in relief after FEMA workers and volunteers arrived to begin inspecting homes for repair as well as to bring much-needed essentials, like water, food and gasoline.A volunteer but also a victimJanet Espada is a FEMA volunteer who lives in Juncos.Hurricane-caused flooding destroyed much of what was in her home. Still, she counts herself lucky.“Other people have lost everything, their entire house is gone,” Espada told ABC News.Espada is among the FEMA volunteers now fanning all over the island.A NASA rocket scientist from California, a lawyer from New Jersey, and college students from San Juan who are acting as translators are among the volunteers spending their days in stifling conditions setting up registration sites to help residents file claims with FEMA to get their houses inspected and fixed.So far the agency has counted 63,000 applications and covered $7 million worth of assistance so far.“I got here Sept. 8,” Debby Stevens of New Jersey said. “We came for [Hurricane] Irma and survived Maria.”Stevens acknowledged that aid for the devastated island of about 3.5 million U.S. citizens seemed slow in arriving.But, she said, “We’re doing the most we can.”In addition to the FEMA workers, the Department of Defense now has 6,000 staff on the island.‘Walking in is very emotional’The residents of Juncos weren’t the only ones overwhelmed with feelings when FEMA arrived.The agency’s press secretary, Paul McKellipps, felt the same way as residents rushed up to shake his hand and thank him.“Walking in is very emotional,” McKellips said through tears. “These people have gone through the perfect storm. They don’t have electricity; they can’t find their loved ones. Having them express the gratitude that they have … is pretty humbling.”He’s also upset at what he sees as finger-pointing in the wake of Hurricane Maria.Puerto Rico’s infrastructure and electrical grid were already in such poor condition that no planning could have helped the island be ready for the storm, he said.“It’s not enough; it’s not fast enough. They know that. We know that. We’re doing as much as we possibly can,” McKellips said. “We still have search and rescue teams that are out there. We’re still in the early stages of this.”Houses with roofs and doors blown off may take weeks to fixFood and medical aid are coming through, including a barge carrying water and meals that arrived Saturday.Two million liters of water have been delivered to the island while over 1 million have been handed out, FEMA officials confirmed.The huge Navy hospital ship, the USNS Comfort, is headed for the island to service the most hard-hit areas.But a FEMA backlog means a damage claim on a home that normally would get a response within a few days might have to wait for 30 days, a site manager in the southeast city of Maunabo told ABC News.Trump tweeted that ‘all buildings now inspected for safety’Trump tweeted Saturday that all buildings in Puerto Rico have been inspected, a claim that the island’s governor was unable to confirm. Related “I’m not aware of any inspections,” Gov. Ricardo Rossello said. “Of course there are areas of Puerto Rico that we haven’t gotten any contact” with.“Perhaps he was referring to a particular set of buildings I’m not sure what the context was,” Rossello said of Trump’s assertion.‘A state of disadavantage and inequality’Rossello, in an emotional speech Sunday in San Juan, urged fellow U.S. citizens on the mainland to see responding to the crisis in the U.S. territory as a “moral imperative.”“I want you to reflect why Puerto Rico is in its current state of disadvantage and inequality,” he said. “It’s not something that happened a few months and a few weeks prior to the storm. It is a condition that has happened for more than a century in Puerto Rico.”“I invite you to reflect and consider that Puerto Rico has the highest per capita participation in our military and armed forces compared to all the states,” the governor said. But, he said, “right now we have over 150,000 veterans here that don’t get equal treatment because they live here on the island.”Rossello also recognized support from the president and some congressional representatives and governors.“I know there is more that we need to do, but it is important we recognize that the president, state governments are pledging support,” Rossello said.“I’m here to tell you as the chief executive of Puerto Rico that they are.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Student used his body as human shield to protect classmates in Florida shooting

first_imgFamily of Anthony Borges(PARKLAND, Fla.) — When he and his classmates came face to face with a gunman shooting up their Florida school, Anthony Borges put the lives of others before his own, a friend who survived because of the teenager told ABC News.A soccer player at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, 15-year-old Anthony placed his body between alleged mass killer Nikolas Cruz and fellow students, according to Carlos Rodriguez, who said he survived because of Anthony’s heroism.“None of us knew what to do, so he took the initiative to just save his other classmates,” Carlos, Anthony’s best friend, told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”As gunfire erupted on Wednesday in the halls of Building 12 at the Parkland, Florida, school, Anthony and his classmates rushed to hide in a classroom as the gunman bore down on them, firing randomly and rapidly at students, Carlos said.Anthony was the last of 20 students who fled into a room and was trying to lock the door when he was shot, Carlos said. He held his ground in the doorway, putting his body between the bullets and his classmates, who all survived uninjured, Carlos said.Anthony was shot four times, taking bullets to the back and both legs, but survived, his father said.Royer Borges told ABC News that his son called him shortly after the attack and described the massacre at his school that left 17 people dead.“He just called me and says, ‘Dad, somebody shot me in the back and my leg, too,” said the father, breaking into tears.Royer Borges said he has heard of the courageous selflessness his son showed and expressed pride in his boy.“He’s my hero,” he said.Royer Borges said his son is in a hospital in stable condition after undergoing hours of surgery.“I only ask that people pray for him,” he said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Dump and Chase hockey mailbag: New Jersey Devils’ Taylor Hall, Washington Capitals’ John Carlson and the 2020 draft

first_imgDump and Chase is a new bi-monthly mailbag by Sporting News answering all your NHL, draft, prospects and hockey-related questions.​ You dump the questions, we’ll chase the answers.The leaves are falling and snow has already been spotted across North America, which can only mean one thing — hockey season is in full effect. However, it seems fans are already clamoring for answers that may not be fully figured out until the calendar turns 2020. Sporting News’ experts weigh in on your burning questions in this edition of our new mailbag, Dump and Chase.@A_Cherry: What’s the likelihood Hall stays in jersey?I’d say it’s 50/50 for Taylor Hall staying in New Jersey. The Devils have the cap space to re-sign him but it’s down to whether he believes his long-term future is with them. He’s only been to the playoffs once in his career and wants a shot at the Stanley Cup. If the Devils fail to right the ship and fall further out of playoff contention, the more likely he could opt to test next summer’s UFA market.  — Lyle Richardson@ash_glover_89: Out of (Justin) Barron and (Jeremie) Porièr which defenseman will likely make it into the top 10? My bet is Porièr rises. He’s been sensational so far.It’s early, but I don’t think either one has done enough to overtake Erie’s Jamie Drysdale or those elite forwards in order to crack a very competitive top 10 for this year’s draft. Barron is an excellent one-on-one and positional defenseman, and Porier is a smooth-skating playmaker, and although I think both will go in the first round, it should be after that elite top tier. — Steve KournianosThe Lineup: Pastrnak vs. Draisaitl, Tavares’ return, red-hot Isles and more in the week of Nov. 4@ChrisHowdy: Will Carlson finally win the Norris?From just the start of this year, it’s easy to say that John Carlson’s making a strong case. Sure, his numbers are outstanding on the scoresheet; he has seven goals and 23 points in 16 games. He’s playing with more responsibility, care and confidence, serves as an offensive catalyst and quarterback on the power play, and at the other end of the ice, he’s doing just as well. What makes him such an outstanding defenseman in today’s game is that he has speed, vision and a high hockey IQ while not being afraid to make sacrifices (28 blocks already) or engage in battles for the puck.Beyond his individual ability, he’s also been a leader on and off the ice; he’s been skating over 24 minutes per game since the start of the 2017-18 campaign, taking on a major role in wake of Washington losing a lot of veteran blueline depth. The 29-year-old has been able to be a mentor to the Caps’ young D-corps, not only showing chemistry with whomever he’s paired with — just look at the impact he’s had on Michal Kempny, Christian Djoos and Jonas Siegenthaler — but also helping the team in an off-ice leadership role as an alternate captain.Taking all that into consideration and seeing that he’s become integral to Washington’s success from end to end? Yes. I do think this will be Carlson’s year that he wins the Norris. Plus, just ask Alex Ovechkin. — Sammi Silber @jdenne79: Who’s more likely to turn it around. Dallas or NJ?While my preseason prediction had the New Jersey Devils winning the Metro and with the team showing some signs of life here and there, their three wins thus far are just not going to cut it. What ails this team is tough to nail down, although chemistry among the forward corps and not being able to maintain leads late in games are definitely red flags. Can they make changes? Sure, any team can, but Dallas will likely be the one to climb the standings; after all, the Stars have 2019 Vezina runner-up Ben Bishop between the pipes, Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin, Joe Pavelski and Corey Perry up front, and future perennial Norris Trophy candidate Miro Heiskanen on the blue line.Besides, Dallas has won six of their last seven and is a team that has been in this position before — remember, Benn and Seguin were f—ing horse-s— last season in late-December — and still made the second round of the playoffs. — Jackie Spiegel@prolixERG: Sabres only have 4 F’s signed for next season… Who on their current roster are their priorities to sign to deals?Among the Sabres’ free-agent forwards, Sam Reinhart is the priority. He’s steadily improved over the past two seasons and is on pace for a 70-point campaign this season. He’s also coming off his bridge deal and in line for a significant raise. Victor Olofsson could also rise in priority if he finishes among the leading rookie scorers. — Lyle Richardsonlast_img read more

East Demerara Estate soon to be closed – GAWU

first_imgEstate closures…as cane planting comes to an endThe Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) may soon close another estate as challenges in the sugar industry persist.The Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU), having met with more than 40 workers attached to the East Demerara Estate (Enmore and LBI Estates), has been informed that the GuySuCo management has instructed that workers must proceed with cane cutting operations at those estates, but this directive followed the disclosure that the East Demerara Estate will no longer offer work for cane planting. Some of the workers are therefore calling for severance payment, as their traditional tasks are no longer required.A delegation of sugar workers meeting with GAWU representatives on MondayGuyana Times has been told that as per norm, 20 percent of each plot is planted with new canes, and the remainder of the plot is reserved for the regrowth of old canes. However, GAWU feels that since cane planting activities have ended, GuySuCo is clearly gearing to close down operations at the East Demerara Estate.“The decision by the Corporation to end cane planting is testimony that the Estate is being geared for closure,” GAWU contends. “Interestingly, so far, no official announcement to that end has been made, either by the Government or by the GuySuCo, yet the Corporation is implementing steps indicating the estate’s closure,” GAWU said on Monday.The union says it has learnt — by way of the Sugar Corporation CEO’s request for an urgent meeting with the union to discuss the development — that GuySuCo is proceeding with plans to end cane planting at the East Demerara Estate and at the Rose Hall Estate in East Berbice.GAWU is emphasising that moves to end operations at either entity contradict the reported statements of Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo when he said that sugar will not die.Earlier this month, Guyana Times was told that Enmore Estate would allegedly be closed. “Them give us a white paper at the Ministry of Agriculture, and de white paper mark that them gon close Enmore Estate after harvesting crop 2017,” a worker had informed this newspaper at one of the many protest exercises against estate closures.The operations of the LBI Estate were in 2016 amalgamated with those of the Enmore Estate, in a move which was slated to save the cane operations, according to GuySuCo. “Now, just months later, the closure of the estate operations has been initiated. It demonstrates that partial political consideration has been given by the Government towards the industry,” GAWU has claimed.Livelihoods affectedGAWU noted that the East Demerara Estate employs some 2,200 employees in the field, factory, security, administrative and managerial sections.“They and their families, among many others, stand to be affected by the harsh closure decision. We once more urge the Government to abandon this consistent anti-worker direction, given the dire consequences to a major segment of the Guyanese working-class,” GAWU admonishes.The experiences at Wales “are fresh in our thoughts, as hundreds have been placed on the breadline and have fallen into a state of despair”, GAWU declares. “Hundreds more again on East Demerara Estate seem to be destined also to go this way; and worse too, seemingly at this time are being denied their severance entitlements,” GAWU stressed.Meanwhile, workers attached to the now defunct Wales Estate gathered outside the factory gates on Monday to reiterate calls for payment of outstanding severance package benefits. This comes mere days after the workers had departed en masse from a meeting with several Government Ministers after Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan had disclosed that GuySuCo could not afford to pay workers severance benefits.Government has said the Wales Estate was closed after billions of dollars were accrued in losses over the years. At high level sugar consultations held last year with GuySuCo, the union and the Opposition, Government disclosed that only three estates would be kept functional.last_img read more
