Alanys Arroyo and her little brothers have been cooped up in a school for weeks, but they aren’t in class. They’ve been living in a campus-turned-shelter in western Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria flooded their home and destroyed their belongings, trying to pass the time while their family waits for help to replace the apartment it lost in the storm.
A big Puerto Rican THANK YOU to IBEW Local 827! The union is holding a pig roast at Redd's Restaurant in Carlstadt to benefit NJ4PR and support the hurricane relief effort on the island. The event will feature a buffet dinner, cigar roller, DJ, and much more!
When the sun sets in Puerto Rico, it brings with it an unencumbered view of the Milky Way. But it’s a view a growing number aren’t sticking around to see. As federal aid and independent relief efforts come trickling onto the island, an increasing number of residents who can afford to, or find a way to, continue to leave — reports already have shown a significant number fleeing to Florida.
