Hurricane Maria : Jennifer Lopez donates a million dollars to Puerto Rico - Gala

The devastation in Puerto Rico will take months to clean

"We know how much destruction has been done, and how hard it is going to be to rebuild Puerto Rico", Cuomo said.

After Maria, the US island territory has no electrical power except from generators. He didn't tweet once about Puerto Rico, where citizens have been largely without power, water or means of communication since Maria hit Wednesday as a Category 5 hurricane.

Hurricane Maria is being blamed for killing at least 10 people in Puerto Rico. "More than 15,000 people have been forced into shelters, and the storm has devastated the lives of thousands of others".

Abner Gomez Cortes, the executive director of Puerto Rico's office of emergency management and disaster administration agency, told ABC News that the island had not seen a hurricane of this strength since 1928. "But we have to marshall that desire to want to help and we have to do it smartly and we have to be organized about it".

Following the storms, Cuomo visited Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands in a show of solidarity and to better understand how NY could help. Lo took to Instagram announce her desire to help those who were affected by Hurricane Maria.

Supplies were running low in many areas of Puerto Rico Monday, and outside assistance was complicated by damaged airports and harbors, according to The Washington Post. Anybody we've have called is right there asking what they can do.

Rains from Hurricane Maria have put the dam in danger of collapsing.

Donald Trump has been criticised for his silence after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, whose 3.4 million inhabitants are U.S. citizens.

Rey Delgado, a West Seattle resident and local baseball/softball coach, will be collecting Puerto Rico Relief Supply Donations today, Monday 9/25, at Hiawatha Playfield from 3-7 pm.

The White House told CNN the President would visit the island territory, but that a date has not yet been confirmed.

A handful of stars with connections to Puerto Rico joined New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo at a press conference Sunday to draw attention to the severity of the damage, Deadline reported Sunday, including Jennifer Lopez and Rosie Perez.

As a school girl, Zenaida Fernandez Quiles was allowed every summer to travel to her grandmother's home in Puerto Rico - the home Quiles was born in.
