SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Within a week of Hurricane Harvey slamming into the Texas coast, Virginia had dispatched a 14-person urban search-and-rescue team, a 17-person team to save people trapped by flood waters, and a National Guard team with 40 soldiers and seven helicopters.

The Adventure of the Seas cruise ship is set to bring relief supplies to Puerto Rico on Friday morning, and then begin regular sailings Saturday from the island hit hard two weeks ago by powerful Hurricane Maria.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the people of Puerto Rico, those who live here and those who are on the island, as they recover from the devastating impacts of Hurricane Maria.

However, the response from the USA government has so far been underwhelming.

The vice president was aiming to reassure people in the US territories that the Trump administration will help the islands recover from the massive storm.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello defended the timing of the request, saying it took time to appreciate the extent of the devastation. "So don't tell me that I can't get gas from Venezuela, but the USA can sell CITGO in the United States of America", she continued. "And we are going to need bipartisan cooperation".

Trump visited the island on Tuesday and praised the governor, local aid efforts, and the federal response. NY has the largest Puerto Rican population outside the island, and it has been preparing for an influx of residents after Hurricane Maria wrecked the island.

The governor commended Pence for visiting the island. The White House has not yet announced plans for the president to visit the Virgin Islands, but Vice President Mike Pence stopped there this week. Everything in the areas affected by the storms is destroyed.

Along with innumerable others, Weaver was disgusted with Trump's treatment of the citizens of the unincorporated USA territory.

The island is now looking to Washington for help.
