Food and emergency aid arriving in Puerto Rico
September 25, 2017 — Food and aid cargo are already arriving at Crowley Maritime Corporation’s Isla Grande terminal in San Juan, Puerto Rico, following the devastation of Hurricane Maria. The hurricane, one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit the island in 80 years, pummeled parts of Puerto Rico with winds of 155 mph and as much as 40 inches of rain, unleashed catastrophic flooding, destroyed infrastructure, knocked out power to the island’s 3.5 million residents, and cut off most communications. The storm is blamed for at least 10 deaths.
