SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) The Food and Drug Administration on Friday warned that US drug shortages are possible because power outages in Puerto Rico have stopped or limited production at many medicine factories there.

As of Friday, about 90 percent of Puerto Rico is still without power, while the death toll has climbed to 36 since Hurricane Maria made landfall on September 20. "Who knows if they're going to be able to shower or whatnot, but a lot of our officers have family in Puerto Rico".

For families, like Santos, this is the least they can do to help their homes. "We're grateful for his leadership, for his faith in the efforts that we are doing and of course his continued support for the people of Puerto Rico", he said.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), this crisis has left less than ten percent of the Puerto Rican population with power, only 55 percent with access to drinking water and over eighty percent of cell towers out of service.


So far, they have collected about $6,000 and have used the money to buy things like fans, mosquito repellent, and other basic necessities.

"It doesn't matter where you are from", Curbelo said. "We need to do something about it", she said. "At the end of the day, we're all human beings and it's our job to help".

Santos and her daughters were volunteering their time Saturday to help the cause. "We are here for the long haul to make sure the island not only recovers but prospers". She also vocalized the idea of efforts moving beyond isolated fundraisers and events of cultural organizations and towards a more unified effort from FSU.
