The U.N. says Puerto Rico is on the verge of becoming the first U.A.E. territory to declare a humanitarian emergency.
But that does not mean there are any relief operations underway, and it is unclear whether Puerto Rico’s relief efforts will include FEMA, the U,S.
agency charged with providing aid.
FEMA said in a statement that it was not prepared to provide information to the public about the status of relief efforts in Puerto Rico.
The U.B.C. hurricane recovery agency said it was aware of Puerto Rico and its people and is working with them on relief.
The agency said in an email that the UB.
E.’s recovery team had already received over 6,000 people through its humanitarian efforts.
“We’re looking at the full impact of this disaster, which includes the need for assistance, recovery and rehabilitation,” said U.C.-B.R. Director David Smith.
U.S.-based relief organizations have also been helping Puerto Rico with relief.
Puerto Rico is in the midst of a Category 4 hurricane season, which means it is experiencing severe damage from the winds and waves.
