    Poor Puerto Rico. They have yet to recover from the last hurricane, and here comes another one.
    I hope they are better prepared for this one, and that it turns out to be less than what they expect.
    My prayers go to the Puerto Rican people. May they weather this new storm with courage, and faith.

  • CFlorida girl on August 28, 2019

  • Joe Hernandez on August 28, 2019

    All the PR corrupt politicians are looking forward to jacking their peoples aid again. Looks like there will be more FBI investigations.

  • Sh. LOPEZ on August 28, 2019

    Prayers for PR 💗🇵🇷

  • Bob Quigley on August 28, 2019

    Neglect by our federal government is directly responsible for Puerto Rico's situation.

  • Milton Monnin on August 28, 2019

    Looks sort of Gray , what a picture that paints …

  • Julian Hall on August 28, 2019

    People don’t understand how devastating that hurricane effected PR. It scared the people & nuyoricans as well. And the worst thing is you have a president who threw paper towels like a basketball game and diddnt help or care about the “U.S territory”. PR might as well stay by itself because the U.S doesn’t care about you whatsoever. Sad thing is DR came faster then U.S!!

  • James Stevens on August 28, 2019

    The incompetent Mayor will again blame Trump for it. Typical Demonrat. Getting ready here on Florida, looks like I'm getting a direct hit Cat 3. Fully prepared now, bring it on.

  • iGqpple on August 28, 2019

    No one:

    CBSN: Puerto Rico braces for tropical storm Doian.

  • Linda Spinks on August 28, 2019

    When president #45, opens his mouth for whatever is he says, he could build a pile of bullsh*t. Pathetic 😡… hope the best n luck to Puerto Rico 🇵🇷. Let’s just say we Puerto Rican, we strong. We do c the light @ the end of the tunnel.

  • Sandlin22 on August 28, 2019

    I wonder how many billions they'll misuse this time

  • Mark W. on August 28, 2019

    Politicians already lining up to steal disaster aid before anything happens, and then cry about total lack of preparation.

  • Soturian on August 28, 2019

    You might even say… Our Picture of Dorian is Gray…

  • RickK RocKStar on August 28, 2019

    Liberal Democrats: Hurricane is Trump's fault. 🤡🤡🤡🤡

  • Citizen 1 on August 28, 2019

    They live on an island but don't build to prepare for storms. Lazy, stupid and corrupt. Don't give them ANYTHING this time!

  • Lawrence Sullivan on August 28, 2019

    lies and more lies from the current 'occupant' of the WH who has to take a personal shot at the mayor of San Juan as the chance to offer personal insults is always pursued.

  • Medium rare beef hammer on August 28, 2019

    I moved to Indiana and a lot of family lives down in Florida where I grew up. Be safe down there this feels like an every year occurrence. I’m buying a lot of land up here. GLOBAL WRMING

  • Nimrod Quimbus on August 28, 2019

    I would think that they can re-use all their old lumber…It would seem reasonable to construct a house so that these sheets can be easily installed and locked down.

  • -- on August 28, 2019

    If they had a wall this wouldn't be an issue

  • cyanleopard on August 28, 2019

    It’s sad to see a part of US be neglected in such a way.

  • Red Neck on August 28, 2019

    My mother was born and raised in San Juan, her entire family is down there. But even they'll tell ya that it was Carmens fault that they barely got any of those damn supplies.

    They had tons of bottled water just sittin on the tarmac.

  • IMPERIAL N1KWVP on August 28, 2019

    Jesus christ. 42 billion…….how many roads can be rebuilt how many schools could get modernized..how much how much how much. Well just pray it dont hit.

  • IonlyROBwhite DrugDealers on August 28, 2019

    This island is basically worthless now

  • KiTT FOXXE on August 28, 2019

    And watch the Democrats steal all the relief supplies and hide them and lie about Trump just like they did last time
