Brother's Brother Foundation assisting with Hurricane Fiona recovery
CAGUAS, Puerto Rico (AP) — More than half a million people in Puerto Rico remain without water service three days after after Hurricane Fiona slammed the U.S. territory.
Many are lining up for hours to fill jugs from water trucks. Others scoop water from mountain runoff.
Fiona dumped roughly two feet of rain on parts of Puerto Rico before hitting the Dominican Republic and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The Category 4 storm is likely to near Bermuda late Thursday and then easternmost Canada late Friday.
The storm played havoc with the Puerto Rico’s patched up electrical grid. As of Wednesday, roughly 70% of Puerto Rican customers lacked electricity.
Brother's Brother Foundation (BBF) is helping with Hurricane Fiona recovery.
The organization, based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been air shipping hygiene kits, tarps, cleaning supplies, and hard hats to those affected by the storm in Puerto Rico.
Ozzy Samad, President of BBF, joins Gabe Ortis to discuss his organization's relief efforts and challenges often faced.
