A week after Hurricane Maria pummeled Puerto Rico, the island is facing a widespread humanitarian crisis due to the acute lack of water, food, fuel, and medical care. “A lot of the positive news that is being heard outside of Puerto Rico about the situation getting better is not our daily reality,” said the East Puerto Rico district superintendent.
Hurricane Irma left a wake of destruction in the Caribbean, devastating Antigua and Barbuda, St. Martin/St. Maarten, St. Barthemely, Anguilla, and the Virgin Islands. At least three Nazarene churches were severely damaged, and 13 deaths have been reported.
