Rubio Says Puerto Rico Faces a “Potential For Serious Crisis” Following Hurricanes

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL, on Monday said there is “potential for serious crisis” in areas of Puerto Rico, which were recently been slammed by Hurricane Maria.

“Returning from #PuertoRico now. Tremendous damage,” Rubio tweeted on Monday evening.

“Potential for serious crisis in areas outside of #SanJuan MUST get power crews in ASAP.”

The White House on Monday sent Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Brock Long and Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert to Puerto Rico to assess the damage. The Island took the brunt of both Hurricanes Irma and Maria this month.
