REPORT: Obama urges help for Puerto Rico after quakes: “I hope you’ll support their recovery”
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by Axios:
Former President Obama tweeted an appeal Sunday for people to support Puerto Rico’s recovery following a series of earthquakes that have rocked the island, killing at least one person.
Why it matters: Puerto Rico’s governor declared a state of emergency Tuesday and President Trump has approved a federal disaster declaration request after two earthquakes measuring magnitudes of 6.4 and 5.8 struck — displacing many people and leaving much of the island without power. Aftershocks have since hit, and there was a 5.2 magnitude quake Friday.
Our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico can use our support after this week’s earthquakes. They’ve shown their enduring spirit over the past couple years, and it’s up to us to pull together for one another once again. I hope you’ll support their recovery: https://t.co/rYhSb8uVXK
