Challenge

Historic flooding throughout the island has caused sectors and municipalities to be cut off. The Island's weak electrical system has suffered multi-million dollar damage and the Island is experiencing a general blackout.

Solution

Puerto Rico Rises, together with its allied organizations, carries out a damage assessment and activates its response program by providing water, hygiene items, tents,s and solar lamps to hundreds of families.

Long-Term Impact

It is reported that it will take weeks to repair power lines in addition to the damage caused by the general flooding across the Island. Businesses and agriculture have been catastrophically damaged.
