Jennifer Lopez Pledges $1 Million In Aid To Puerto Rico

"Today Puerto Rico needs our help".

Numerous 3.4 million American citizens living on the island are without power and disconnected from communications, and officials estimate some areas won't see power restored for months. At least six people were killed in Puerto Rico, said H├ęctor M. Pesquera, the island's public safety director.

Browne said he had spoken with the Prime Minister of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit, who said the island experienced "widespread devastation" and whose own house was destroyed by the storm.

While they raise money and collect supplies for those affected by Hurricane Maria, a local coalition of Puerto Rican leaders is hoping for more help from the United States.

He said the people of Puerto Rico need help, and he called for something like the Marshall Plan, which rebuilt Europe in the wake of World War II.

The statewide collection of supplies and money will go to help the US territory that was seriously damaged by Hurricane Maria.

"Our focus and priority continues to be on the safety and health of our employees and the recovery efforts for all the families of Puerto Rico", said Crowley's John Hourihan, senior vice president and general manager, Puerto Rico services. The NYPD and FDNY have promised to send dozens of first responders and members of the Office of Emergency Management to the island's capital of San Juan to assist with rebuilding efforts.

Many hospitals are flooded, heavily damaged and running exclusively on gas generators, reports Reuters.
