In Shadow of Puerto Rico's Nightmare, Virgin Islands and Others Facing Intense Struggle

Julia Conley, staff writer

While much media attention has rightly been focused on the devastation in Puerto Rico this week as calls have grown louder for President Donald Trump to deploy more resources to help the recovery from Hurricane Maria, the White House's inaction has caused attention to be pulled away from the U.S. Virgin Islands and other parts of the Caribbean that were also ravaged by the storm.

all those homes in the photo, if they would have been earth sheltered build with block or cement, would still be standing. ALL islands need to be off the grid, go green and work along with mother nature. reuse water, save rain water, go wind and solar, compost waste. Please stop building wooden two story square houses in areas that have high winds and heavy flooding. has no one learned from he three little pigs? lol now if these houses were built with lego blocks, lol they can put them back together…any way they want,lol

When I read about the destruction of the fishing fleets, I thought, how nice for the fish! No human predators. Bet there are a lot of top ocean predators around there next year . . .
