A week after Hurricane Irene passed through the island I'm back. I'll try to summarize what happened on the island ah after the hurricane.
Although was heading as a tropical storm in the course of entering the island was developed as a hurricane category one. The northwest and west of the island did not suffered the onslaught of much wind.. But the east and northeast of the island suffered a lot. Many roads were impassable, either due to flooding as fallen trees and landslides. About 600,000 people were without electricity, now has nearly restored throughout the island. Heavy rains caused extensive flooding. In some municipalities fell to 17 inches of rain. 20 million were lost in agriculture and 500 million in infrastructure.
President of the United States, Barack Obama said in Puerto Rico as an area of "major disaster", so the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA, for its acronym in English) of the Department of Homeland Security of the United States announced that federal disaster assistance is available to the government of Puerto Rico to complement the efforts of state and local recovery in the area impacted by Hurricane Irene during the period of August 21, 2011 onwards.
