In Puerto Rico, about 3 million residents still have no electricity from the power grid, and more than 1 million people still have no clean drinking water, now one month after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico as a Category 4 storm. The official death toll now stands at 48. At least 113 more people are still missing. Across the island, residents say they are suffering from eye infections and gastrointestinal diseases as a result of exposure to contaminated water. On Thursday, President Trump said his administration deserves a “10 out of 10” for its response to the ongoing humanitarian crisis on Puerto Rico.
