Q&A: What Keeps Puerto Rico’s Governor Awake at Night

PhotoGov. Ricardo A. Rosselló said the first priority was the safety and well-being of Puerto Rico residents. Decisions on rebuilding can come later, he said.Credit Erika P. Rodriguez for The New York TimesSAN JUAN, P.R. — Gov. Ricardo A. Rosselló of Puerto Rico discussed the aftermath of Hurricane Maria and the needs of island residents with a reporter from The New York Times on Tuesday. […]

‘This Is Like in War’: A Scramble to Care for Puerto Rico’s Sick and Injured

On the ground, Puerto Rico remains a patchwork of desperate fixes, with 3.4 million people improvising ways to get much-needed medicine, diesel for their generators, food for their shelves and water to either drink or bathe in. With no choice, people wait and wait, some as long as a day for gas or hours for food at local supermarkets, which are letting in 25 people at a time to avoid mayhem.There is some progress. The governor said Tuesday that 450 of the island’s 1,100 gas stations are now working. Two days ago, that number was 181.Health scares are mounting […]

The Monster Surge That Wasn’t: Why Irma Caused Less Flooding Than Expected

The surge also caused flooding in the enclaves of Coral Gables and Palmetto Bay. As Irma, now a tropical storm, traveled further north Monday, its eastern winds continued to push water up into the coasts of eastern Florida and Georgia, with parts of the region facing seven feet of storm surge. In Jacksonville, coastal surges and heavy rains have swamped the central business district and swelled the nearby St. Johns River. Sea-level rise caused by climate change also worsened the storm surge that did occur in many areas. In Miami, sea levels have risen roughly 10 to 12 inches in the past century. “That may not sound like a big deal, but when combined with a four foot surge, it can mean the inundation of thousands of more buildings,” said Dr. Needham. Still, the damage could have been far worse […]

Death Toll Climbs, and Relief Efforts Stall, as Caribbean Braces for Hurricane Jose

It could be days before rescue workers can fully assess the extent of the aid needed — and losses inflicted — by both storms.“That is not only stopping all of the work we began in the last few days,” Mr. Hamoir said, referring to Hurricane Jose. “It means we will have to start everything over again in three days.”Across a band of the Caribbean islands, aid workers had been racing to get supplies to populations stripped of practically everything. By early Saturday, in a rare bit of good news, it looked as if some of the hardest hit islands, like Antigua and Barbuda, would avoid the worst of Jose, as the storm’s course looked set to bypass them.The United States Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands, along with Antigua, dropped their hurricane warnings to tropical storm watches, while Barbuda and Anguilla downgraded their warnings by Saturday afternoon.St. Martin and St. Barthélemy, however, two of the islands ravaged by Irma, were still under a hurricane watch.The full damage from Irma has not yet been calculated, but the early estimates are grim: The islands of St. Martin and St. Barthélemy, were approximately 80 to 90 percent destroyed; for Antigua, Barbuda and Anguilla, the figures are similar.In Cuba, Hurricane Irma caused widespread damage on Friday night when the eye of the storm passed directly north of the provinces of Camagüey and Ciego de Ávila in the central part of the island. The authorities have not yet made a substantive announcement about the extent of the damage to the area, where more than 50 hotels and resorts generate significant revenue for a nation that is short of cash.Continue reading the main storyDamage to these resorts, along with heavy agricultural losses and reconstruction costs elsewhere in the country, will be a major economic strain on the country.Residents woke up Saturday morning to see whole houses destroyed, and roofs ripped off warehouses. The few images trickling in, however, suggest that the destruction in Cuba is not as cataclysmic as it is on islands elsewhere in the Caribbean.The island of Guadeloupe, which was spared by Hurricane Irma, has become a staging ground for aid efforts, with hundreds of largely French rescue workers using it as an operational hub.The French relief operation has been one of starts and, for now, stops, but efforts to help those on the British Virgin Islands have only just begun.

Devastation in the Caribbean as Hurricane Irma Heads Toward Miami

How is it possible, they wanted to know, that a hurricane that had passed at a safe distance and hardly claimed a shingle could leave so many in the dark?Continue reading the main storyPuerto Rico’s plunge into darkness has been long coming. In July, the huge, government-owned power authority defaulted on a deal to restructure $9 billion in debt, effectively declaring bankruptcy.It has neither modernized nor kept up with maintenance. Trees have gone untrimmed, poles unattended. (The electric company did not respond to repeated requests for comment.)Gov. Ricardo A. Rosselló said the authorities could not estimate how long it would take to get the power back until officials were able to survey the damage.Thursday afternoon he said service had been restored to 144,000 households — which still left nearly a million out.Still, he said, things could have been much worse.“We would like to start out thanking the almighty,” Mr. Rosselló said. “Our prayers were answered.”PhotoResidents in Port St. Lucie, Fla., prepared for Hurricane Irma’s approach at Home Depot.Credit Jason Henry for The New York TimesOn other islands, the reckoning was far more stark.On St. Martin, a part-French, part-Dutch possession where at least four people died as a result of the storm, aerial footage taken by the military showed streets inundated with water and homes devastated by winds.
