'Hamilton' creator Miranda among celebs lashing out at Trump over Puerto Rico

Gov. Malloy administration issues guidance to schools regarding displaced students from Puerto Rico

"The electric power grid in Puerto Rico is totally shot".

"The President was slow and begrudging in mobilizing the military for Puerto Rico", said Sen.

A sign that reads in spanish, Playita (neighborhood), need water and food, SOS, is seen Baldorioty de Castro highway, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Sept 30, 2017. Ms Cruz, the mayor of San Juan said "of course", she would meet with the President if he asked for a meeting.

Hurricane Maria left many of Puerto Rico's 3.4 million U.S. citizens without shelter, water, power, and other basic necessities.

Cruz responded to Trump's criticism on Saturday, saying in an interview on MSNBC, "I was asking for help".

Mr Sanders, who challenged Hillary Clinton for the Democratic primary and who many believe may have beaten Mr Trump in the general election, said the President had spent the weekend tweeting from his "fancy golf club", while the mayor of San Juan was trying to secure food, water, fuel and electricity for her residents.

This is after accusing the San Juan mayor of poor leadership and being unable to get workers to help the USA territory recover.

Organizers said they know they're not alone in this battle, because when struggles arise, the Erie community steps up.

"We've never seen anything like this", he said, noting that Washington is sending 10,000 federal personnel, including 5,000 National Guard members. "I know it is really a good news story in terms of our ability to reach people and the limited number of deaths that have taken place in such a devastating hurricane".

Muharram observed in Odisha with tazia processions, mourning
Stringent security measures were adopted to safeguard all processions with the help of personnel of the law enforcement agencies. The court had directed the police to ensure that Muharram processions and Durga idol immersion procession shouldn't overlap.

"I am begging, begging anyone that can hear us, to save us from dying", Cruz said at a news conference Friday.

The president is headed to the island on Tuesday to survey the damage.

The White House said Trump will make calls to several Puerto Rico officials, including Gov. Ricardo Rossell├│, on Saturday afternoon.

Schumer also criticized Trump for waiting almost two weeks to visit Puerto Rico, noting the president had traveled to Texas twice in that time when Harvey struck. She said they've been ready with volunteers and trucks needed to get the supplies out.

Mr. Trump fired off a series of tweets criticizing San Juan mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz for criticizing his administration's hurricane response. "This is about lives being lost if things do not get done properly real quickly", she said. "We want them to be safe and sound and secure, and we'll be there every day until that happens", POTUS promised.

Cruz's comments on Friday were in response to a senior USA official calling the disaster response in Puerto Rico "a good news story".

Trump is planning to visit the USA territory on Tuesday.

"The three-star general is on his way, if he's not already arrived in Puerto Rico, to evaluate the response and what the requirements are".
