From Reuters: Power blackout leaves darkened Puerto Rico isolated and paralyzed.
The Diva thinks the situation is Puerto Rico is more dire than any ever seen in the U.S. The extent of the devastation and the fact that both the power co. and the Commonwealth government seem to resemble post-war Germany more than any example of the aftermath of a natural disaster in the U.S.
As of Sept. 27, several newspapers have articles that detail how poorly the disaster response is going, giving President Trump some of the blame for lack of leadership.
Presently, I doubt that the National Disaster Recovery Framework will be adequate to deal with the extensive damage and unique requirements of Puerto Rico. The ratio of destruction is higher than any previous natural disaster. Therefore, the recovery process may need a Marshall Plan approach.
