    The ports are where the fuel is coming in. Some of the roads will be clear and are being cleared.


    DOes anyone know how this percent showing up for work compares to past hurricanes?

    The hurricane hit 12 days ago. I would have thought that locals would have cleared their own roads by now. Although I would certainly understand if there are collapsed buildings on roads that need heavy equipment to remove.

    I'm sure some roads are blocked by trees, buildings, down bridges, ect.


    NOt all of them though.

    How many CAT5 hurricanes with a direct hit to an island, with 95% destroyed or damaged have there been to compare to? :rolleyes:

    Can you verify that they are not in the Teamsters? This article says otherwise, although it's possible that multiple media sources are getting the wrong information from a single source.

    In any event, it appears PR truck drivers are on strike.

    So 12 days after the hurricane, it's Trump's fault that the roads are blocked and it's Trump's fault that local truck drivers are on strike. Is that right?

    Cat fives are horrible! I looked up the death toll. Out of 3 million on Puerto Rico 16 died. The US gov is there in full force with supplies and military and still the left bray like jackasses that Trump did nothing! Why?
