  2. One Year After: Air Operations

    Cidra, Puerto Rico, September 17, 2018 - The FEMA Air Operations Branch was activated after Hurricane Irma to respond in Puerto Rico, and it substantially increased in the aftermath of Hurricane María.  Roads were innaccesible due to landslides, debris, washed out bridges and knock down trees, electric poles and cables.  The air missions were carried out by local, state and federal agencies at all levels.  The response to the hurricanes was unprecedented, resulting in the longest sustained domestic air mission of food and water and the largest disaster air mission operation in U.S. history.

  3. One Year After: Río Abajo Bridge in Utuado

    Utuado, Puerto Rico, September 17, 2018 - On Wednesday, September 20, 2017, Hurricane María made landfall in Puerto Rico.  The heavy rain it brought caused rivers overflow, and the strong water current destroyed everything on its way.  The bridge in Río Abajo, Utuado collapsed as the river overflew.  Survivors were isolated and forced to devise a zip line to receive much needed commodities to people on the other side of the river.  FEMA obligated $4.7 million dollars from its Public Assistance program to build a new temporary bridge that allowed survivors to return to normalcy.  FEMA partners with federal agencies, state, local communities and municipalities stakeholders to provide assistance to disaster survivors and local communities.
