PUER­TO RI­CO

Vocable (Anglais) - - Grand angle -

Ru­by Ro­dri­guez, 8, looks back at her mo­ther as she wades across the San Lo­ren­zo Mo­ro­vis ri­ver in Puer­to Ri­co. The bridge was swept away by Hur­ri­cane Ma­ria. On 20 Sep­tem­ber, Puer­to Ri­co was slam­med by a po­wer­ful ca­te­go­ry 4 storm, the stron­gest to make land­fall on the Car­ri­bean is­land in 85 years. The US ter­ri­to­ry is now suf­fe­ring from a lack of elec­tri­ci­ty, wa­ter and fuel, and has li­mi­ted cell phone ser­vice. “Puer­to Ri­co, in terms of the in­fra­struc­ture, will not be the same... This is so­me­thing of his­to­ric pro­por­tions,” said Car­los Mer­ca­der, a spo­kes­man for the is­land’s go­ver­nor.
