Global Reinsurers to Bear 'Significant Share' of Hurricane Maria Claims: AM Best


Hurricane Maria hit the US territory more than a week ago, leaving it without power and its roughly 3.4 million residents short on fuel and other supplies.

A mountain of food, water and other vital supplies has arrived in Puerto Rico's main Port of San Juan.

In Puerto Rico, there is still a struggle to deliver aid to those who need it most after Hurricane Maria. He has also been using the hotspots to send his own news to a few friends, passing on photos of Maria's devastation.

As of Wednesday night, students and professors have donated $979 - almost 20 percent of Hoos For Puerto Rico's goal of raising $5,000. United for Puerto Rico (Unidos Por Puerto Rico) lets you donate through PayPal or directly to its bank account.

But the American Maritime Partnership, which represents more than 400 USA shipping companies, said a waiver would hinder relief efforts.

Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke said the waiver will be in effect for 10 days and will cover all products being shipped to Puerto Rico, according to a release from the department.

"I'm really anxious about her".


At present, Puerto Rico is desperate for inputs - tools to fix generators so that electricity can be restored, supplies to purify water and avoid cholera, materials to buttress its damaged, crumbling infrastructure, and provisions to feed its population.

"This is what they do", Rubio said Thursday. "The supermarkets are only letting five people come in at the same time or else there's looters everywhere".

"If we don't get help, something is going to happen that will be a long-term problem for Puerto Rico".

Yet, the Trump administration has refused to grant even the short temporary waivers that were instated after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

"The Hoos4PR GroupMe has been really unbelievable". "I spoke to my brother and he said, 'Hey Adrian I don't know what is going to happen to my job now, so I might have no choice but to come to the mainland and work there for awhile.' Luckily I was able to get a flight reservation for my parents to fly up to CT". We'll update as more information becomes available.

"The stories I've done lately have been some of the most important stories of my life", she added.

"I know there can be more help", said Juan Cruz as he filled a container. "Release some sort of statement".

"The aftermath of the hurricane has caused an enormous hardship to the island, and our thoughts are with the people of Puerto Rico during this hard time", ESPN Senior Vice President of College Sports Programming and Events Pete Derzis said in a statement.

"I think they care, I think they want to respond", Rubio said. "We are USA citizens".
