Crowley Maritime Trucks Continue to Aid Puerto Rico

Only 7% of the island has power and more remote parts of the island - a United States territory - have been without food, water and basic medical aid.

"I am very pleased and appreciative of the efforts our truck drivers have made to speed relief cargo to those in need", said Larkin.

Crowley Maritime Senior Vice President and General Manager, Logistics and Commercial Services, Frank Larkin reports that the company's trucks have been a valuable resource, standing as one of the first commercial trucking that was able to respond when Hurricane Maria hit.

Comparing the storm's certified death toll to the 1,833 killed in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina, Trump said, "Sixteen versus in the thousands". At least 34 people, and likely many more, have died of storm-related causes. "Let's stop talking about the death count until this is over".

In turn, U.S. President Donald Trump accused her of "poor leadership". "This juxtaposed against some of the media trying to say that you weren't attentive, but the people on the ground, the ones who were actually in the middle, thought your response was actually pitch ideal, is that frustrating to you?" asked Huckabee. "And that's fine. We've saved a lot of lives".

Trump visited the island last Tuesday.

Several weeks after the September 20 Category 4 storm devastated the USA territory, only 11.7 percent of the island's electricity consumers have power, and 56.8 percent of Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority customers have potable water, according to FEMA's website tracking the federal response to Hurricane Maria.

Trump also spent some time learning about water purification tablets, asking a local "Would you drink it?" and when she answered in the affirmative, added, "Really?" while looking dubiously at the package of tablets. The White House press pool said he was golfing at another of his properties on Saturday.

"We're gonna work something out", POTUS said. My question is they all knew the hurricane was coming two weeks in advance, why didn't they get off the island when they could?
