Puerto Rico Gov.: We Need More Help After Hurricane Devastation

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello on Sunday called for the Pentagon to provide more aid to the beleaguered island commonwealth, which has faced “complete devastation” in the wake of monster Category 4 Hurricane Maria. “We need more resources from the Department of Defense so we can get helicopters and resources,” Rossello said. “We know that there are capabilities in the surrounding areas, helicopters, planes and so forth.” Rossello asked that Congress also provide more relief, in whatever form the island can get it. “Whatever relief package we have, whatever impact we have, we are U.S. citizens,” Rossello said. “We shouldn’t be the lesser for it.”
