These are the people the United States should be helping.  Let the rich countries in the Mid East take care of their problems..

What I found was the "300 million dollar deal" that they were complaining about was made by the power company of Puerto Rico - (no kickbacks there I'm sure ;)

They also didn't request the mutual aid - that you see around here when one area is hit - the other power companies - canada included all help!     Someone in the PREPA  Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority decided wasn't necessary???

But its all blamed on FEMA?

DTE Energy sending crews to help Puerto Rico with hurricane recovery
« Reply #144 on: December 24, 2017, 09:02:04 AM »

Lots of logistics just to get equipment and supplies in place before they send in the 'troops'. 

I wonder how their 'flat land' equipment will hold up in all that rock?

Kind of makes one appreciate the response time we have lived with here on the mainland during our lifetime.

It would be nice if everyone living in the US appreciated how good we have it here in all respects compared to almost any other country in the world. And show some appreciation instead of disrespect.
Not sure how I got off the subject to disrespectful football players !!!  Fuzz made me do it !!

Gee and just as Trump has decided to withhold aid to Pakistan, and the PLO/Hamas... 

As a side note apparently the Island of Puerto Rico was our only source of IV mini-medicine bags?

I read that about a week ago.  They now have nurses standing beside patients for 30 minutes at a time injecting meds at a slow pace!

That's going to run the cost of care through the roof!

I haven't seen anything yet on the DTE crews that were heading to PR.  I know there were some major logistics involved in getting their equipment delivered.

Here's an article on some citizens that decided to take care of their own system.
